Can anyone tell me ifFMcan start after a traumatic injury I use to be acop and one day I had to dive out of the way before being hit by the car I was chasing. Well when I did so I landed on my left hip, and that is whenn all my problems started. I startedhaving alot of pain throughout my body, but mostly on the left side. Thisinjury took place in 1999, and I was just diagnosed in March. I also wanted to know if repeated lower back surgeries would cause disabling flare ups. I can tell when I start having a flare up, because I hurt all over my limbs start gettin tingly and I want to sleep all the time. Any info on this would really be appreciated.
