from medications perscriped, such as Celebrex, Robaxin, Ultram,
and nortriptyline? Also, taking Serzone for depression. Experienced right eye PAIN before spasms begun.

There is no assoc between fibromyalgia and muscle spasms around the eye.  It is also unlikely that your medications are causing this.  These are very common and can be induced by stress, changes in diet or exercize or electrolyte abnormalities.  Eye pain for any reason may be the cause as well, especially dry eyes.  It would be a good idea to see an ophthalmologist for an evaluation.
