I looked at many of your explanations on when your Fibro' started, many seem to have been from a traumatic event.

An idea I believe is that adrenaline toxicity may cause many conditions, or adrenaline poisoning is many conditions:
PTSD and Fibro' immediately.

The reasoning works like this - adrenaline affects every kind of cell in the body and it is not gentle about it.
It effects everyone differently, everyone's systems and organs are affected or not, depending on genetics, sex and age.

Those who suffer PTSD have cells that are damaged by adrenaline - people with Fibromyalgia, have nerve cells damaged by adrenaline.

Here is the kicker - adrenaline is released in both good and bad events. Roller-coasters and Combat.

So, if I may ask, did your Fibromyalgia start after an adrenaline releasing event? Good or bad?

Since i got the fibro, adrenaline makes me sick to sleep, like i'm overly exhausted. i feel like my system is destroying from recovering with years, i become more sensitiviy particulary to anything.

Its true that many relate fibro, to an event..

In my family we have what is called genetic , my mother and an older sister and one of my two girls all have fibro..

I remember symptoms even as a child , but in my 30's when my kids were young it really kicked into high gear.

Ljm, Genetics are certainly a part of it. Were there events that would have produced adrenaline in your 30's when things got worse?

Kriya, you definitely seem to have an adrenaline component, it is there something within a month or so of your first event that was adrenaline-causing?

Thanks.

Psychomorphs, nope none of that. my first encountering symptoms was associated with stress and emotional pressure, but nothing more any sort of than psychological letdown. i was physically strong and perfectly healthy before.

The funny thing, that i had it while i was asleep, only after wake up, i've noticed something is wrong. otherwise i'd probably be in panic and would of rush to hospital if i only knew how it start.

I had a very stressful life and was born with a weak nervous system.. So i am not surprised that i ended up with Fibro. When i was 40 i got one more bad news, cried for 3 days non-stop and felt that my nervous system "broke down" completely at that point. All my pains started and that was a trigger for my FM.
Of course i found it out later... I was going from dr to dr for over 2 years before i found my diagnosis.
Yes, it was myself, who found what's wrong with me. After all it was 1995 and not too many medical professionals knew about Fibro.The interesting thing about it WHERE i found it.. IN "NATIONAL INQUIRER"!!! I am not kidding! I still have that article "Medical condition docs often miss". I started to read all symptoms listed there and i knew immediately that was my case. It was confirmed by my neurologist who was VERY surprised at where i found my diagnosis. Btw the "National Enquirer" do have an interesting medical info printed from time to time.

Hi, Natik, and welcome! I sure hope you had Lyme disease ruled out. Fibro and Lyme share many of the same symptoms. You might want to check out our Lyme disease forum. There are other illness, too. That share many of the same symptoms...like lupus. We have a lupus forum also here on HealingWell. I sure wouldn't get my "diagnosis" from the National Enquirer.

Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Check out the link called What Else Could It Be. This could be helpful for you.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi Sherrine! I only got an idea from National Enquirer and as i said i brought it ty my doctor right away and he said something like "hmm... maybe... i thought about it.. etc". It was over 22 years ago and it is still my official diagnosis (among others). And i saw many-many other doctors after that. As for Lyme disease - i need to look more into that because i hohestly don't remember if i ever was checked for it. Thanks for your suggestion!

Posted By : Sherrine - 2/23/2017 7:03 AM
Yes, I'm glad you will be checked for Lyme disease....especially if you find you are getting worse and worse! They were just discovering Lyme disease back then and didn't have a test for it but now they do.

Fibro is not considered a progressive illness but Lyme can be. We did have a fibro member who was diagnosed with fibro for years find out she really had Lyme disease. She started the treatment for Lyme and started feeling better. And, we have had people diagnosed with Lyme disease who found out later they didn't have Lyme but really had fibro! The symptoms are so similar.

Please let us know what you find out because we do care about you. And, while you are at it, have lupus ruled out too. You can have Lyme and fibro and also lupus and fibro. Yep, it's confusing!

Aww... ty so much, Sherrine! It's so nice to hear that somebody cares about me. I forgot how it feels... I found myself in so much isolation that it's hard to believe and i am sooo glad i found this forum just a few days ago. I had a feeling i will find not only new info but possibly new friends here, give me some time to look around! At this point i look like a professional complainer lol In fact i like to joke and adore ppl with a good sense of humor! Let me explain why i said that i am so very lonely...
I was born in Ukraine, came to US when i was already 33, finished Ultrasound Diagnostic School in Manhatten, was working as a sonogram tech in NY and had only 7 "normal" years in America before i got Fibro and it became harder and harder to keep working. When i moved to live in Los Angeles where my son was - i had to go on disability. Obviously i have no friends here because i never grew up, study, work or socializing at that point in LA. My son has his own life with a wife and 2 daughters (LOVE them)! They live about 50 min from me, but i don't drive anymore and my son is too busy for letting me in his life.
I was trying to make my long story short.. Will be glad to make friends here on forum!! Will share our stories, knowledge, any medical info or whatever else. I love medicine, just don't like to be a patient hehe If you find any mistakes in my typing, pls forgive me b/c English is is not my native language. See you (and other forum members) later! Gentle hugs

Why don't you start an introductory thread so our members will know you are here. You can get lost in other threads. this way members will get to know you better.

Sure, Sherrine! I was just thinking about doing it when i found your post. I will copy and paste most of my story because it will be a lot of typing again and i am slow with it..

Kirya,
So you and many others, based on other members conversations, have had stressful, events that triggered Fibro.
Stress releases adrenaline, of course.

I wish others would hit the vote buttons, like you did. I think it could easily advance knowledge of the disease. If all of you got the disease after a stressful situation, or even that you are aware that within a month or so of an adrenaline inducing situation, you got the disease, you could work paths to improving the situation.
