IBS (common with fibro)
Burning pain
Reynauds (common with fibro)
Old feeling (I feel ancient!)

Youth stolen
Analgesics (all pain medications, including Tylenol, NSAIDs, and Opiates)
Lyrica (a FDA approved fibro med)
Glia (cells that play a part in the Central Nervous System) 
Individuals (don't let your doctor treat you like all fibromites are the same!)
Allodynia (pain due to a stimulus that does not normally provoke pain)

Mental fog (also called "brain fog," or in the case of fibro, "fibro fog")
