I have a sister with TMJ and restless leg syndrome. So I guess she got partial fibro because of the TMJ.

I don't have a sibling with fibro, but my grandma and my aunt both have it, and they are from different sides of my family. I don't know if fibro is genetic or not, but there could be some traits that run in families that make you more prone to getting it. It's possible. It is a big controversy with doctors and researchers.
