For those of you who feel you had this at a young age (teenager or younger)inspite of the pains did you seem to have an extra amount of strength? When I was a kid I was always very strong I could get things open when my parents couldn't stuff like that. I was always stronger than my friends and the boys, even older boys. I always seemed to weigh a lot but I was real skinny,it didn't make sense to me. I was just curious and wonder if that had anything to do with the fibro.I think in the past year I've lost most of my strengh, very quickly.Does anyone have any answers? THANX, TAMARA!
