Showering With Fibromyalgia



Both FMS and ME/CFS patients are prone to dizziness and this is usually due to a symptom that is known as orthostatic intolerance. This basically means that they will feel dizzy as soon as they stand up. Such a condition is usually due to the abnormal drop in blood pressure.

The heat from the shower along with the actions involved in washing and bending to lather up can overwork the patient and make them feel off-balance. Remember that experiencing dizzy spells while in a hot shower is very dangerous, as it can cause you to slip and fall.

The reasons behind dizziness in fibromyalgia are different from the causes of dizziness in patients with ME/CFS. However, the end result is just the same.
