i believe and agree with al i have read here. lots of knowledge. i believe i have had fibro for years. pain, insomnia, medication sensitive,allergies, asthma, diabetes, HBP. about 13 years ago i couldn't get out of bed one morning. husband had to cary me to the dr.sit was about a months after my beloved Dad passed away. dr. said my epstein barr titer was the highest he had ever seen. started all of a sudden to get cold sores constantly, had shingles twice. never had a cold sore in my life until then at age 40. took years to learn how to handle the relapses and cut them short. 5 years later my 21 year old duahgter passed away in a tragic car accident. 2 years later i started to suffer work related lifting injuries. i am on myfifth one now. lots of trauma to the mind, body and also the epstein barr virus. so you can see i can't distinguish what brought it on but i believe they have all played thier part. started to see a rheumi in feb. for nodules on my hand knuckles. as he was taking a history asked me if anyone ever mentioned fibro to me. of course they hadn't. he felt i had 99% of the symptoms so began a process of outruling other diseases and making a dx. have outruled MSand had no symptoms through it rheumi has yet to confirm a dx but i think we both know that's what it is. i am at the point where i know i can live with all of this just have to make many liefestyle changes physically and mentally. my best to all and welcome to the newbies.:wave:
