    Hello,

    I have had FMS for about 15 yrs. I have just begun looking at message boards again after quite a few yrs. Previously everyting you read abreviated fibromyalgia syndrome FMS. Now it is abreviated FM. Does anyone know the reason why? I know this is a silly question, I was just wondering.

    Thanks,
    Judy

    Thank you for the information! I have heard the term "Waste paper basket" the last time I was at the doc. office. She said it was so long ago (15 yrs.) that I was diag. with FM (and just recently had a diag. of Graves disease) that she wants me to see the reum. for other auto immune deseases. She said because FM has a lot of the same symptoms and because FM is a "Waste paper basket illness" because there is not known cause and I may have developed others in addition to FM and GD. What fun huh? lol
    Thanks again,
    Judy
