I don't have bipolar, so I don't know for sure, but I would think that FM would make bipolar worse. There are so many cognitive symptoms with FM, along with the very common depression. These things certainly could not be good for existing bipolar symptoms.

I would also think that periods of mania from the bipolar could really cause a FM flare. Since people tend to overdo everything during a manic episode, that could easily make FM symptoms worse.

It seems to me that each of these illnesses could make the other worse.

On the other hand, some medications that are used for FM are also used for bipolar, so you might help both conditions with one medication.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Yes, I don't know either as I don't have depression or bi polar. I do have a couple of nice on line friends who have either ME and bi polar or fibro and bi polar.

I think they might make it harder to deal with the other if that makes sense. Having one thing is hard enough, let another another disease.

I do hope you find good support here though. :hug
