Hi! I am new to this message board. I signed up because i need to know more about this disorder. I was told two weeks ago by my physician that i have FM. This was diagnosed by a specialist after I seen him for injuries sustained in a car accident. My biggest question..can you get FM from a car accident?? I am a relatively healthy 30 female...mother of 3..fit, etc. I was rear ended in Oct 05 by a gravel truck (semi)..unloaded thank goodness...but he hit me going 60 km per hour. I was in a ford windstar (02) van, stopped in heavy rush hour traffic. I didn't see it coming. Just a little info...can some one please let me know if they have been through this..what to tell my lawyer, what to do to help my pain? I am so at my wits end..thanks! Oh..my name is Tracy btw!
