    I'm so afraid that my family will 'catch' this from me. Are there any indications that CF/FM is contagious? I've seen from some of the posts that several members of the same family have this; would my family being here supporting, helping me put them at risk?

    Thanks in advance for ANY input. This site has been a god-send to me and SOO helpful.

    There are no real signs that CF/FM are contagious like a virus.
    There are some doctors who believe it could be genetic.
    As far as environmental, there is no proof supporting that at this time.
