How Many Of You Were Diagnosed After A Fall?

I have noticed that many of us have fallen prior to being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I fell and broke my foot, then was diagnoed with breast CA which led into fibro. Anyone else notice that?

I've read numerous times it is brought on by an accident, surgery or a life changing shock to your body!! Mine definitely came on from stress caused by WSIB and three unsuccessful surgeries on my shoulders which left me with s huge life change with useless arms! I totally believe these!!

Fibro occurs often after an injury, stress or an illness. The injury can even be a minor injury. I had injured my back then along came fibro.
