My mom has Frbro. She has suffered from it since she was about 20. There was this time when I was six when she had to take months off of work to get diagnosed. She tells me she can't remember I time when she's not in pain. And its scary watching what she is going through but I can say she's really strong: she still works as a teacher and most of the times you wouldn't know she has such a debilitating condition.
I am 17. When I turned 16, I started experiencing headaches. These headaches would last for two weeks at a time. Sometimes I'd have trouble concentrating. Eventually, I started having this burning feeling in my skin. All over my body. My tongue and eyes would feel as if they were on fire. My face was the worse. I went through a bout of Irritable Bowel Syndrome as well as Cystitis. I hd unexplained abdominal pain. I have had extreme jaw pain to the point I couldn't open my mouth. Now it would seem like I have Occipital Neuralgia. I have shooting pains in my head, and neck pain. Recently a friend tried to give me a shoulder massage and there was this spot near to my blades that made me want to cry out in pain every time she touched. I have Tendonitis in my hands which is really debilitating in school as I have issues writing exams. Very recently the tendonitis has started in my ankles. My knees constantly hurt, made me quit ballet. Most disturbing though it recently... I would have pain in my left foot. My muscles would feel as if they were pulling in so much that I couldn't sleep as well as constant lower back pain, if I pressed on my spine there even slightly it'd hurt. My ears are always full and stuffy, I have tinnitus and chronic sinusitis. My mom says she can relate to most of these things but I want to know if fibro can be passed down. My pain is in no way widespread but over the past year I have seen an increase in the intensity of the pain and the areas which hurt. I am very scared that as I get older the pain will become worse.
