    I wish I could help you out but I just don't know. I can tell you that I have FM, my niece has MS, and we both have a lot of very similar symptoms. I personally agree with the people who think FM is caused by something to do with the CNS--brain and /or spinal column. Therefore, it would totally make sense if MS, FM, and other illnesses like them were all connected. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

    Take care. Maybe someone else can give you a better answer.

    I have a firsst cousin with MS (female) and one with MD (male) ... my Dad has a first cousin with MS and one with Disc disinigration (I can't spell even) both are females. Another distant relation (same ancestorsal line) has FM (female). My sister has FM and TMJ but her FM is not as bad as mine.
