    Was wondering if anyone has ever had encephalitis?

    I know there are many reasons or how or when we developed FM/CFIDS...and I know I had a car wreck and also encephalitis (brain infection) within the same year 1983...but it wasn't untill 2000 after going thru horrible stresses in my life nonstop for 2 yrs that I became extremely ill and was diagnosed with FM.

    Along those same lines, I believe my Mother who passed away in 2005 with COPD, I believe she had suffered with FM for years without being diagnosed. And now, I believe my 21 year old son has FM.

    He has suffered since childhool with leg pain and fatigue and muscle stiffness and soreness??
    So I'm confused as to how we get FM, and are we born with it, but things can trigger it later in life, like with me?

    Any thoughts?
