I've read a multitude of articles and papers which say there is a possible link between fibromyalgia and adhd, and the possible benefits of treating the first with medication for the latter, I just wondered if anyone is receiving this kind of treatment.

    How interesting! I just read an article on this! It said
    What the researchers found is that a whopping 45 percent of the people with fibromyalgia screened positive for adult ADHD.

    Most of the people who had ADHD knew on some level that they had a problem — they had reported cognitive impairment in higher numbers than those without the accompanying condition.

    Results of this study were also published in the journal Pain Medicine in November 2017.
    Anyone with fibromyalgia who was worried about this could speak to their GP about testing and options.
