Fibromyalgia And Past Traumas

Fibromyalgia And Past Traumas

Many of my treating health professionals have told me that fibromyalgia is most common in people who have had past trauma, I had childhood trauma and suffer depression and complex PTSD.
I am interested to know if this is the case, you don’t have to go into details just a yes or no is ok , did you suffer trauma?

I’ve read that in many publications and had one doctor ask me if I suffered childhood abuse. I am wary of this because it’s a docs way of putting what you’re going through down to “psychological” because they can’t fix you so it must be caused by mental health issues. Having said that, I went for solution based therapy due to a serious situation in my family, mainly involving my Mother and oldest son. The therapist identified long standing emotional abuse by my Mother and suggested maybe I have C-PTSD. Honestly, I don’t think I have C-PTSD but I do recognize that I was emotionally abused by her my entire life. Funny how when you’re in a relationship, especially with someone like a parent whose meant to love you, you don’t see things for what they are. I do know stress and emotional pain certainly increases my symptoms but I don’t accept that this illness is strictly psychologically based.
