My MS neurologist agrees that I may have fibromyalgia as well as MS. Many of the symptoms overlap and I have many (like IBS, vestibular migraine/vertigo, acid reflux, tinnitus and so on) that have been diagnosed as their own conditions but could, looking at the symptom list in this video, all be due to fibromyalgia. Not that a diagnosis of any of these offers a viable treatment let alone a cure, even now, five years after this video was made in 2006.
