Hi Blackbird and welcome to our family. Like RedDiane I use to be a human pretzel so flexibility has nothing to do with fibro. Recently pain doc and physical therapist were both surprised at how flexible I still am at almost 58. I had to work on stretching my muscles when I was young to do the splits, flips and all that.
You need to find another doc. In the mean time stick with us and read, read and read some more. Starting with fibro 101.
Oh, and your never too young to have fibro either.
luv and hugs
