Causes of Fibro
8 Replies
Carrie Lee - August 7

I went to a physiatrist yesterday and was told though I do have many fibro characteristics and symptoms that it could not be caused by a trauma . I fell off of a ladder in Jan and have been from doc to doc since. I'm not looking for a cure just answers for my daily pain.

While some physicians feel that post-traumatic fibromyalgia and primary fibromyalgia are the same condition, others differentiate between fibromyalgia patients that can link the onset of symptoms directly to a physical trauma, and those who do not. Doctors that recognize the existence of post-traumatic fibromyalgia note that physical trauma directly causes soft tissue changes that may lead to the clinical syndrome of fibromyalgia.

Post-traumatic fibromyalgia may cause painful tender points located only in the region of the injury, and may not develop tender points in all 11 of the 18 tender points to meet the criteria for fibromyalgia syndrome defined by the American College of Rheumatology.
There is such a thing cause that is how I got mine here is an excellent article print it out and give it to the doctor.

My rhumatologist has said that there is a direct connection between physical and emotional trauma that links to the onset of Fibromyalgia.. I do believe that it is a possibility.. If you havnt.. you may want to see a rhumatologist.. they seem to be the most educated in the area of Fibro.. at least in my experience.. Good luck..
