    What do you all think about the possibility of fibromyalgia having an infection component?

    See: "Vaccines as fibromyalgia trigger, vaccines as fibromyalgia treatment"

    I have mixed feelings about this. I know that the Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center clinics do often treat underlying infections that may have triggered the onset of fibromyalgia. I guess part of me hopes that it really is related to an infection because that would mean that when they figure it out, we could potentially be treated for it more successfully. Hm....

    Bumping - I am interested in this myself if anyone knows.

    I am not sure I understand what the FFC centers treat. I did see them and cannot handle the supplements, etc.

    I guess I wanted a lighter pocketbook.....

    Anyway, I will be seeing a infectious disease specialist in January - Dr. Chia in Torrance, CA. I know he tests for stealth infections, etc. - uses antibiotics, anti-virals, etc.

    I had to wait months to get the appointment..
