    I think the combination of the anesthesia from surgery and the accutain could have done it. I was overexposed to formaldehyde in the late 80's and develop a sensitivity to things containing the chemical. I had a hysterectomy in 2000, I think thats when my syptoms started. The next year I got poison sumac and was on steriods for 21 days followed by poisoning myself while staining my deck in the hot sun. I think all the exposure accumulates, sensitizes or wears down the immune system. It is difficult for me to shopping. I just realized it because of all the chemicals in new products, I always thought I just hated shopping--I still use this excuse along with arthritis; people seem to understand that better than FM.

    and had a hysterectomy. She came down with FM a few years later. She also has Sjoegrens and a bunch of other health problems.

    I have never taken Acutane myself but was on low dose ABX for 10 yrs for acne and think it may have contributed to a chronic candida problem that eventually made me sick with CFS/FM.
