    You blame every disease for fibro. I had none of this. Ive had fibro for over 30 years. So why did I get it.

    This one is easy…..hormone disruptions cause sleep problems and sleep problems cause pain. Most fibro patients are women, most start the symptoms right around perimenopause. A sleep med taken at the start of this just might help tremendously, but meds in this class are also now in the controlled substance category and doctors are afraid of prescribing them.

    I FOUND OUT I HAD HYPOTHYROIDISM ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO. IT TOOK TIME FOR THE MEDS TO WORK. THEN IN 2012 I HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS. PAIN AND AND EXPANDING TUMMY. I HAD A FIBROID TUMOR THAT GREW TO BE A HUGE SIZE. I HAD EVEYTHING TAKEN OUT. THE TUMOR HAD EATEN ON OVERY AND THE OTHER WAS SO SMALL IT WAS NOT WORKING. . THE SURGEON SAID IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT SURGERY. IT TOOK A YEAR TO RECOVER. I WAS 63 YEARS OLD. THEN I BEGAN GETTING FIBRO SYMPTOMS BUT ONLY KNEW THAT IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS. I TAKE HRT. MY THYROID WENT FROM HYPO TO HYPER AND THEY CHANGED MY MEDS. I HAVE BEEM IN BED WITH CRONIC PAIN. I JUST WENT GLUTEN FREE AND IT SEEMS TO BE HELPING. I AM ON GENERIC CYMBALTA. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A VERY ACTIVE PERSON AND NOW I AM MOSTLY HOME BOUND. I ALWAYS WONDERED IF THE EXTREME STRESS OF THE HUGE TUMOR (FIBROID) AND SURGERY PLUS THYROID DISEASE LED INTO MY FIBRO. THE DR. SENT TESTS SEE WHAT OTHER DISEASES I MIGHT HAVE.
