In brief: Fibromyalgia ; Mood

Research has found a link between fibromyalgia and depression.
It sounds like you are experiencing symptoms of depression (difficulty remembering and concentrating). I recommend consulting with your doctor treating your fibromyalgia regarding your memory and concentration problems; as well as your difficulty breathing and poor balance which is probably related to your anxiety about fibromyalgia.

In brief: Possible depression

The symptoms that you list are commonly associated with depression and anxiety.
Fibromyalgia is commonly associated with those problems and, if it is, it is not likely to improve unless those problems are successfully treated. You need to see a mental health professional.
