Did Anyone Get Diagnosed With Fibro Because Of Ptsd?

Did Anyone Get Diagnosed With Fibro Because Of Ptsd?

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.
Good Luck

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
