Ok so i guess i will give you guys a little background information. My mother was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 7/8 years back, my cousin on my moms side of the family has muscular distrophy (not sure if somehow tied in) and i think i might have it. I never really thought about the posibility of me having it because i thought my mom was just being crazy and lazy when she would complain about it. (you have to know my mom) but then i meet this guythat i'mdating now and his mother has it too but alot worse than my mother. She is on perminate disability. So he is the one that pointed it out to me. He swears up and down that the symptoms i have sound just like his mothers. But how do you know? I am only 24 and yes i have be diagnosed with some of the problems listed that corilate with fibromialgia but i always thought the doctors were wrong.they said i had TMJ, depression (mild i will agree but it was conditional when the guy i had be dating for 2 years broke up with me and my fahter left my mom for a friends of my's mother), insomnia, and possible resless leg syndrome, but i do have to keep and eye on Hypothyroid condition because my mother has it. I am only 24 the information i read on it says that people diagnosed are generally 30 and older. what do i do? how do i know? AHHHHHH!!!! please help!!!
