    Hi Tina

    I was diagnosed with FM in march last year after damaging my right shoulder in 2011.   I ended up with a bursitus and still going back and fore to doc months later still in pain he then told me it was FM I had. I have Hypothyroidsm also so im not 100% convinced it started when I hurt my shoulder.  Think beinghypo has something to do with it!

      fibro is diognoised by having so many of sensitive points . so if your not sure look it up on the net . put a search in google , something like the sensistive points of fibromialgia ,

      look for a site that has a diagrame of a body with all the sensistive points marked, if u have most then you have fibromialgia. you can have several things before.  a prior condition ,accident, virus ,then go on to devlope it.

       i have even heard that a bee sting can trigger it. fibro means muscles, mialgia means pain ,the term fisrst used to explain .unexplaind muscle  pain & spasms  in soldiers of the first war. keep plugging on thats all we can do.

    hi there,

    when i think back my problems started about 10 years ago with lower back pain which i assumed was as a result of an accidednt at work (senior care assistant).  i then struggled on for a number of years then i had an accident on holiday where i had a nasty fall after slipping on food left on resterant floor (dont ask holiday from hell). this was about 4 years ago and the pain increase happened and spread and that is where i am at still not given diagnosis yet seeing rheumatologist next month hope to get answers then.

    kind regards

    janet

      sounds like me a string of events leading to a painful conclusion its interesting , that this condition seems to be linked to taruma  either emotional or physical . its like our pain and emotional sensors just keep sending out signals after we have physicaly healed.

    mine was from injury over 20 years ago. I fell down a hole damaging my spine and pelvis as i landed on a corner of a grid half way down, at speed, twisting my coccyx, damaging my pelvis and my spine seemed to shift. First thing i did was put my hand to the back of my neck as I expected to feel  a bone sticking out! Not nice a all and suffered ever since. British bloody gas! They were a fault but my claim went nowhere as I had a crap solicitor, only cos it was right next o car park and. Couldnt walk any further!

    Hi Tina..My fibro started straight after my mum died. My husband and I looked after her in our home as she developed dementia. She was not too bad and she was very happy in the little extension my husband built for her as she had her own space but we were still on hand to nurse her. After two years of coping I had to ask social services for something to help me lift her into bed , on toilet etc. They ordered it for me and said it would take about 4-5 days to come. In the meantime they said she had to go into a home till I had the equipment. My mum didn't understand this with her dementia and she thought she was in the home for good. She was very upset and I refused to let her go but unfortunately my feelings were ignored and they did it anyway. She went in on the friday night and I never seen her again...she died that night. I was very bitter and upset bujt didn't even get an apology from them. My fibro started that month. I definately know the trauma caused it. Kind regards and take care. Lin x

      oh sweetie how awful ,that feeling that it was your fault that there was something you could have done ,even thou you know it wasnt , crippled you, emotionly and physicaly . PLEASE dont blame yourself as i am sure everyones told you , it wasnt your fault , you didi your best and far more then alot of people ,  try doing a self help hypnois cd in the morning and in the evening helps you to destress and relax it helps ,
