FM and Weightloss

I was wondering if anyone here with FM has been able to lose any weight,
I go to the gym and do as much as I can (some days less than others) but in general at least I'm moving! Yet in 10months I haven't lost 1lb! Is this another side effect of FM? Before FM I was 21lbs lighter.

Re: FM and Weightloss

My weight fluctuates - always has but I really have to fight now to keep it from going up. I am up about 10 pounds from where I was a couple of years ago and can not loose any of it. I know AD's can pack on the pounds - I gained 8 pounds in 4 days - all fluid - do not take them anymore.

Re: FM and Weightloss

Many people with fibro have weight issues, but not all. Many of the meds recommended for fibro contribute to weight gain, as well.

Some of us on the other hand have trouble with unexplained weight loss. It's more common for those with the CFS & fibro combo.

Best wishes.
