Unclear: It is not clear whether your "Fibromyalgia" &/or facial region discomforts are concurrent with Accutane use. Side effects of headaches, muscle/joint/low back pain, & depression can occur with use of Accutane, and these symptoms are also signature symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Burning facial pain, as an isolated symptom, would more likely be from Accutane.
