    ~*Gentle Hugs*~ to you & your family Jodie. I am pretty sure that my Mum has FMS, not that she'll ever admit that there is a problem. Her sister was diagnosed with CFS.
    My sister has alot of the symptoms, & now my 8 year old daughter has a scary amount of symptoms.
    It does deffinately seem to run in families.

    family memebers that are ill like us...my sister is like 32 years old..i am 41 yrs...so i have been listening to hear woes of life for a awhile...not that i mind at all...

    just been there done that story..

    i need to email her cuse her dr wanted to know what meds i was i on...i will tell her about this site...although i believe she found this site bfore me for me...plus she was searching for some of her own answers as why she feels crappy...

    we may have family members that do not beleive us now but when it hits closeer to home when they are personally affected then maybe the will wake up..too late....but better late than ever..

    I have 3 sisters, we all have Fm. We also have an uncle, and Aunt and a Niece that have it.
    My father passed away 19 yrs ago, and we all believe he also had it.

    You should see our family reunions...

    "So, have you been having headaches lately too?"
    "Yes, have you been really achy lately?"
    "Sure have been.... what about this?? or That???"
    LOL... we all seem to flare at about the same times too.

    I know my family had that. They called it 'growing pains'.
