Does anyone have family with fibro?
My brother Jim and i are 3 yrs apart. he turns 50 in June. He was just given a diagnosis of fibro, on top of his existing arthritis.
thinking about it, i wonder if our parents had fibro too. they were both diagnosed with arthritis (fibro wasn't a diagnosis 40 yrs ago)! I remember the types of pain they exhibited. So similar to mine and Jim's. They are both gone now, so we can't ask them for details. Is this a strange coincidence or has anyone heard things on the contrary?
We have a younger sister who has aches and pains. I have to admit, I'm scared for her. Not that fibro means the end, but I wouldn't want her to suffer.
