http://www.healthrising.org/forums/threads/is-nerve-damage-affecting-the-lungs-in-fibromyalgia.4541/ Am hoping I copied this link right and wanted to say thank you to @Cort for posting a blog about nerve damage possibly affecting the lungs and breathing in Fibromyalgia. I do not actually have Fibro and am not a member of Cort's board so I cannot reply over there but wanted to post the link here in case it resonates for anyone else. Shortness of breath remains my #1 symptom and I now believe that auto-antibodies are attacking my phrenic nerve functioning which is indirectly affecting my lungs ability to inhale/exhale a full breath. Am on the path (it's a very long and winding path LOL) of pursuing some treatments that I believe will help me with this once they are approved. I know I am in the vast minority with this symptom in ME/CFS vs. on neuromuscular and autoimmune boards, it is much more common. But regardless of my label, I was really glad to see this issue being talked about and thought the link/article was very interesting and hoping others do, too.
