Hi, has anyone on this site also got fibromyalgia? I have been looking up my symptoms of a terrible pressure in the back of my neck especially when stressed. Fibromyalgia came up and reading through the symptoms it could be me. I dont think i could be unlucky enough to have two different illnesses and wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this.

Look forward to some replies. Thanks.

Hi Margs1
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia many years before i was diagnosed with pd (2012) .
I have since heard of other people who were disgnosed with Fibromyalgia and later that. Diagnosis was changed to pd .
