I am 28 years old with four boys and a great husband. I enjoy my family and I love baseball!! My FM started after the birth of my first child. I started to have a lot of pain in my neck, shoulders and back. I went to several doctors who all seemed to think that it was in my head or do to the fact that I had an epedural. My pain has never decreased, and no one could explain why.
I finally went to the doctor that my mom was seeing, she was dx with FM. My mom had Rhematoid Arthritis, osteoperosis, osteoarthritis also. I think I possibly inherited the FM or maybe it was brought on by childbirth. That doctor sent me to a specialist and he dx me in about 5 min. My pain and stiffness over the past few weeks has gotten worse. I am just trying to deal withit the best I can. My fatigue is severe. I am still working some days are worse than others.
