Hi I was just wondering if anyone's children have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia or the same type of symptoms? I've also been told I have hypermobility syndrome and that it would of stemmed from childhood. Now my daughter is 9 years old and has always been bendy and slightly doubled jointed. When she stands straight her knees bend inwards, can turn her elbows, feet around neck while sitting. Just lately she has mentioned certain pains and twinges in feet, arms and hands. Other than that she is always in good health, never has all the viruses, colds and flus that my son and I have. But I was just wondering if it carries on, do I just dismiss as growing pains at this age or get her checked out? I certainly wouldn't let it drag on for years though as in my case. I know that these things can be hereditary, especially with women.
