I feel the same way too. I am 23, and I feel soo young as well. I am finding that many people are much older than I am and many more people have had a much more tramatic thing happen to them than I have. Nothing has happened to me, but yet I have EVERY SINGLE SYMPTOM of FIBRO that exists it seems like and have for a long time, and have been through every test and nothing else is wrong with me. I am getting so fed up with tests and doctors, and fibro is the only thing that seems to be the right track for me, and this is what seems to be the best "fit." And this last doctor I went to has made the most sense to me. So, I am like to latter responses, I dont think you have to have trauma done, I just think in some cases, it has happened.
