Vaccines

Has anyone heard anything about Fibromyalgia bring tied to vaccines, specifically the hepatitis b vaccine?

I doubt it as I am 66 yrs. old and believe my symptoms of fibro. began around age 30. I had a very bad car accident at age 28 and had chronic pain in my neck, back and everywhere else also!! They didn't have the Hep vaccine that long and fibro. has been going on forever!

I started having symptoms of fibro 8 weeks after having my final Hep b vaccine.
My doctor showed me some studies that had been done that directly links this vaccine to fibro and cfs

I had no family history of it, no arthritis in the family, no previous injury or accident.
I literally woke up one morning in severe pain and couldn't raise my arms to get dressed or brush my hair.
I got an emergency doctor appointment and there and then my doctor told me about fibromyalgia (I had never heard of it), and then she mentioned that I had had the Hep b vaccine and that a link was being studied. This was in 2009!
Jump ahead to 2015 and that study found answers!

Everyone I have talked to has fibromyalgia from an injury. I didn't have an injury I was told someone in my family had lupus and it stems from that
