Hello, I was wondering if anyone had fibro appear because of trauma from abuse. I recently went to a doctor that said that my fibro was a result of the trauma I experienced in my life and it has made me distrust everything around me even more than before. I was in an abusive relationship for a long time and finally managed to break off all contact over 2 weeks ago, today I made a mistake and contacted my abuser because of the loneliness of Valentine's day.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 5 years prior to being diagnosed with PTSD.
Hi, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia since 2006. I was in a very abusive marriage for many years and had children. I eventually left my husband when the violence and control started to be used on our children. I was stalked by him and after a 2 year court case was able to move house. I met my now husband during this time and he was a rock. After moving my children had counselling and we then discovered he had sexually abused the children. I had no idea it was going on and it hit me very hard. It was st this point i was diagnosed with PTSD and Fibromyalgia brought on by the PTSD. I did discover a few years later that my medical records had question marks of fibromyalgia when i was in my 20's but i was never told. So i had some symptoms which erupted due to the PTSD. I still suffer daily with fibromyalgia and it has got worse over time but I've learnt to live with it.Ive had to change my life and accept its a new way to live. It takes time but you will get there, you have to realise the fibromyalgia won't go away.
I was sexually abused as a child by thre men from the age of 8 to 10 years of age I was wondering if PTSD could have contributed to my diagnosis of fibromyalgia
They and the poodles hog the beds and blankets. Lol.
I'm sorry your baby still isn't feeling well. I hope they can make her feel better with today's visit. Yesterday I sadly just fell back into old habits because I used a medicine for anxiety that I forgot can increase it if used 2 days in a row. I feel a bit better today thank you my fibro friends for the wonderful care and support. I do surround myself with those that love me everyday, but the kitties tend to be a bit bed hogish lol
