This is a very interesting topic you've brought up. I think that fibro is inherited. Honestly, I don't know if it has anything to do with genetic nerve disorders, but I really think that fibro is "all relative." A lot of my family has suffered with depression and fibro like symptoms. Of course, they were never officially dxd, since no one really understood fibro way back then.
Strangely enough, I was dxd because my sister told me that she had fibro. When she described the symptoms, it was like she was describing exactly what I was feeling. LOL-we never had anything in common while growing up, so this was a weird thing we could share. Anyway, I'd had these symptoms since I was at least 15 years old, and I was the kid who was written off as the depressed, crazy one.
So, yeah, I have rambled again-sorry. I think my point was that yes, I think fibro is genetic. LOL-I suppose I could have just said that, but then again, rambling is my specialty!
FINALLY dx'd on 06/13/08
Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what? Doesn't help!)
