Sounds most like: Fibromyalgia. It could be something else, but at your age with your symptoms, with blurred distant vision, it sounds like you may need your eyes checked. The tender points you describe certainly sound like fibromyalgia. Ms can cause pain, but lacks the tender points. Fibro tends to respond well to good sleep and aerobic exercise. Good luck and be well.

Maybe depression: You may have any of a number of conditions, including a clinical depression. I recommend you have a thorough physical exam from your primary care physician, and then a consultation with a psychiatrist to evaluate you for depression. You may have some form of arthritis, and so on. Stay focused, get the evaluations, and keep trying.

A 46-year-old member asked:
How likely is it that my constant pain is from fibromyalgia if not diagnosed?

Possilble: Any constant pain needs to be evaluated by a physician to see what the cause is. Not knowing more about you specifically including where your pain is fibromyalgia may be a possible diagnosis. There is a strong possibilty that other causes for your pain exist other then simply fibromyalgia.
