Fibromyalgia: more than just a musculoskeletal disease.

American Family Physician 1995 September 2

Additionally, persons with this syndrome have a high incidence of headaches, ocular and vestibular complaints, paresthesias, esophageal dysmotility, "allergic" symptoms, irritable bowl syndrome, genitourinary symptoms and affective disorders.
