Cause of Fibro?

Cause of Fibro?

When I think about it, I think I have had fibro all my life. I was diagnosed with osteo in my hips when I was 20, and my spine when I was 47. I cannot walk further than 20m, I cannot stand longer than 3 minutes. My back gets so painful that I start panting. I have always though had extremely sensitive skin and scalp. when my Rheumatologist did the Fibro physical test I almost levitated I was in so much pain.

My question is this though, what causes it? Physical and mental trauma? Link to thyroid?

Hi. I was also diagnosed with hyper mobility the same time when I was diagnosed with fybromylgia.I wonder if there is a connection between the two. I only get prescribed sleeping pills and pain tablets when I go to see specialist and now I have decided to buy my own since it is expensive to consult the specialist. I'm now sure if it is a good idea. I normally take Norflex/Spasmed and use allergex as sleeping pills.

I've read also long-term stress also causes it.

I think mine is a hereditary predisposition, mom and daughter have it. I also have hypermobility in my joints and lax ligaments so i think my muscle spasms are because the muscles are overworking to try to compensate for the ligaments not doing their job. It’s a connective tissue disorder that also has no cure. Together, i’m a mess 😜

I have been giving a lot of thought to this for many years. I have had it for so long (63 now) that I am not sure if I was born with it or developed it early on. A lot of people that have suffered physical trauma from car accidents, illness, surgery, etc. have developed it as well as people that have suffered emotional trauma. I grew up in an environment of emotional trauma. I am still being treated for c-ptsd. I think it arises due to extreme changes in our central and peripheral nervous systems. I don’t think they know how to reset the changes which have occurred.

My mom had it, I have it and I am sure that at least on of my adult children have it, but she won't admit it any more than I did at her age.
