bill smith male, age 68, I suffer the Fibromyalgia syndrome after taking either a 10 or 20 mg tab of Cialis. I know its the Cialis because I don't use it very often (maybe 4 times in the past year and a half) and in each and every time 2 to three days later I get the muscle, soft tissue ache that can last up to 2 weeks then dissipate and I'm fine again, no aching until next time. So just wondering if this is happening to anyone else and would using Viagra produce different results?
