Gentic predisposition?
4 Replies
REJNester - September 8

I am wondering if anyone can help me find information about genetics and Fibromyalgia. I was just informed by my Physician that she believes I have Fibromyalgia. I was a skeptic until now. I have been having these symptoms for years and just let it go thinking it would go away, however, the symptoms increased and worsened. Anyways back to the issue, my sister, a female cousin and my aunt (this cousins mother) all have Fibromyalgia so now that there are four of us in the immediate family with this health condition I am wondering what the genetic link is. I am wondering what testing, if any is being conducted regarding this issue. I appreciate all the help I can get.

yes, doctors believe there is a genetic predisposition.

There certainly seems to be a genetic predisposition to these auto immune illnesses. I have had FMS for over 25 years while my 17 year old daughter has had chronic fatigue syndrome for the last 18 months (this is often considered to be a sister illness to fibro). Also, thinking back, my grandmother who passed away in 1993 also seemed to have a lot of FMS symptoms but she was never diagnosed with fibro as it has only been formally recognised as a medical condition since 1992. In terms of treating this problem, please have a look at a posting I put on this website earlier this week called "Glyconutirents Are Great For Fibro". My daughter and I are both getting very good results using a liquid glyconutrient product made from sea vegatbles and aloe vera juice. Details as to how to obtain it are given in the posting. Please give it a try as you have very little to lose and possibly a lot to gain based on our experience. Best wishes to you for a healthy future - Graeme Knight.

I suspect my mother had it but was never diagnosed. She is deceased, but she always had to take a nap in the daytime and often complained of "arthritis" pain. She was a bright lady but could be forgetful at times. One of my sisters seems to have it also although she has yet to be diagnosed.

My fibro turned out to be Lyme disease. And apparently, so is CFDs too. There are a couple ways everyone can have it. One is if everyone was actually bit by ticks and other insects carrying the Lyme bacteria. Another way is transplacentally -- kids of infected parents are being born with it. Check out for ongoing discussions on what is happening with Lyme disease spreading throughout the world's population.
