A Answers (1)

  • ADawn Marcus, Neurology, answered
    Fibromyalgia does not destroy joints, muscles, or nerves. Although people with fibromyalgia will likely continue to have symptoms for a while after their diagnosis, they will not lose the ability to walk or need to use a walker or wheelchair. Symptoms may be better or worse on different days, but you should not expect to develop other serious problems.
