Could anyone out there tell me if FM is hiredetry. Sorry can't spell! I'm worried that my daughter also has FM. She is 15 years old, and has suffered with her back and legs for a couple of years now, all the doctors say is to give her pain killers. My mum suffers with her muscles and joints. I guess some of that can be put down to old age. She'll be 70 in April. My mothers brothers and sisters havn't been diagnosed with FM, but a few of them have had a lot of the symptoms but just go on, like good little soldiers, no matter how much pain theyr'e in. As for my brother, he has motor neurone disease, My great aunt had parkinsons disease. and i have FM. Does anyone know if there could be some kind of conection? or are we just a very sicky family? I'd hate for my daughter to suffer the pain i go through, sometimes it takes me all my time to get in and out of the bath. At the risk of depressing everyone further Does anyone suffer with a tingling feeling all down their arm from the shoulder to the tip of the fingers. Is this normal? As i'm new to this, could someone please help.I'm sure it's not a trapped nerve like the G.P says. It keeps coming back. Yours Truley. Dolly G.
