How many women out there who have been diagnosed with either Fibromyalgia or Chronic Myofascial Pain (or both) have been experiencing irregular or total absence of periods? I never thought the two might be related until recently. About a year before I started having full-blown symptoms of Fibromyalgia I started to experience irregular periods. I usually only have 3-4 periods a year and have gone over 6 months at a time without having one. My doctor says that my body is not ovulating and that is why the periods are irregular and has led me to believe that it was because of my weight. Now I am thinking that it isn't.
