    Hello,
    Yes, my fibro was caused by a injury at work in California. Unfortunatly, it happened in 1986 before anyone knew anything about fibro. I am now in the process of having the insurance company looking at my case again from the get go. Funny, I am new to the board and signed on this morning to ask the same question. I will post how it goes, I wish you would have given a little more info in your letter. Good Luck with your case. Jeanie

    Greetings, I have been involved with my w/c case since 6/04. According to some of the Doc's that I have seen, in Ca. this is a recognized injury, in Wa. not so. So, I have that going for me. I also have other injuries, most assoc. with a fall in o4. I have seen 5 MD's so far, 2 positive, 3 neg. of course the three neg. are for Sutter Health, go figure!!! I am now just seeing a new Doc in Portland, Wa. he is a orth/surgeon. He is great, and knows' how the "system" works, and will insure my rights!!!! I take Mucinex, prozac, trazadone and Mubic for my fibro. Also I just started taking Nine green tea tabs. for pain, they are helping, hooray!!!!!! Let me know how it goes for you, good luck
