I have trouble breathing and am always out of breath for no reason. Is this a symptom of fibromyalgia?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Possible
Get evaluated to get a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Other causes of shortness of breath should be ruled out before assuming it is from fibromyalgia.

In brief: Many possibilities
Chronic shortness of breath (sob) usually stems from the lungs or the heart although depression, anemia and hormonal problems could cause fatigue and a feeling of shortness of breath.
Fibromyalgia is not high on the list for feeling short of breath. Questions that may help: is your sob seasonal? Due to exercise? Is there swelling of your ankles? Do you wheeze? Cough? Did you smoke?
