I have had multiple sclerosis for many years and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia on Aug. 29, 2002. I realize that CFS, FM and chronic myofascial pain often seem to go together, but I believe there also are a lot (or at least a significant number) of people who have both MS and fibro. While I have seen research articles dealing with fibromyalgia and CFS, or fibro and CMP, or all three together, I haven't been able to find anything at all dealing with possible connections or interactions between MS and fibromyalgia. If such research exists, I'd really like to get it. My neurologist just doesn't want to hear about fibromyalgia, but especially after reading an article (I think it's in the library at this site) about brain trauma and fibromyalgia--and especially in view of other things I seem to recall reading about the role that illness or disease can play in triggering fibro--I can't help wondering if there may be a connection that is being overlooked. After all, trauma isn't the only thing that can cause brain damage. If brain damage is responsible for triggering fibro, wouldn't the danger exist from aquired as well as traumatic brain injury? I have plenty of questions, but very few if any answers. That's why I'd really like to know about any research in this area. I have found nothing in my efforts to search the web on this subject. Even searching the library here at Immune Suport came up dry. Thanks in advance for any information you might be able to share. --Laura R.M.
