    i wanted to know if you had pain when you were a kid and if you had a lot of injuries from over use of your muscles? everytime i used my muscles too much with repetition i ended up injured permanently. i have been saying i have a bad back for as long as i can remember. any input would be great thank you charlene

    i can remember being a kid and when i would lay down at night how my legs would throb. my mother always told me that it was growing pain.then when i was a teen the migraines started. do you have old injuries that never healed? this is why i cant sit the pain all through my back .it started with sciatica then across my bra strap area now it goes right up my whole spine. the left is worse than the right.im just very frustrated with it all. thank you charlene

    that i am talking about are from repetition motion with your muscles. like up and down the ladder caused sciatica for me, not like a break of a bone.thanks charlene

    When I was little I was very sensitive to the sun. If I was out in it and got hot I would have a severe bloody nose. I also remember being tired all the time. Mom kept me busy with books, crafts and tv. In high school I started having problems with falling down. This happened alot after jim class. My muscles would be shaking and burning in my legs during class and then the rest of the day would feel very tight and painful. Of course the doctor could not explain it too me. My family thought I was just wanting out of pe. I worry that my kids have the same problem. When my son was in JR high his knee would lock up-doctor said it was growing pains. My daughter is having the headaches from @#$%, drops things, and is now starting to fall for no reason, the doctors are not wanting to check her for fm because she is so young. I told her that she will have to learn to fight her own battles with the doctors because i dont have the strength to fight my battles let alone hers. Hope this answered some of your questions

    According to my physical therapist, myofascial constriction is cumulative over a lifetime. I grew up on a farm and rode horses. She wanted to know how many time I had fallen from a horse or a tree or similar things throughout my life.

    I told her I had no idea. When you are a kid, those things are just part of life. Unless you break a bone (which I never did) you don’t think anything about it.

    I had 'growing pains' when I was younger and my daughter has them,also...guessing she has FM and will get CFS. I was always a hard worker when on got on my own at 17. Didn't stop working hard till I just couldn't take it anymore and went on disability a year ago. I,now,believe the 'growing pains' were FM and that working hard and ignoring 'stress' may have set off the CFS. My sister and second cousin have CFS and FM. My second cousin has Lupus,as well. Not sure if they had 'growing pains.'I'm positive these diseases are hereditary;even think they might 'skip' generations. If these diseases are new over the past few generations,then I believe there is something in our food,water or air that effects certain people and may be passed down to only those who are susceptible(ie. gene manipulation;prescribed drugs;pesticides;household cleaners...) Only my opinions;not facts.~*Anjie*~ :)
