I was wondering if anyone had Rheumatic Fever as a child?
Yes I did have it when I was 4 years old. And yes I do have a heart murmur. Not a major one though.
I had Rheumatic Fever when I was 10 and wasn't allowed to do anything either for a year. I don't have a heart murmur now but I do think the Rheumatic Fever contributed to my arthritis somehow and the fibro.
Thanks! I just wondered if it might have something to do with the Fibro.
I had rheumatic fever at the age of 11yrs. was so sick I was in the hospital on & off for a year- meds. from 11-18. Pain from then on in all my joints- I have fibro, now going on 5yrs. and wonder too if there is any relationship.
