I have read that it may be due to some kind of trauma in life. I'm wondering just how many of us have had a car accident or some kind of trauma to our nervous system.

I was diagnosed a few years after a car accident. :(

I read about it somewhere, it may have been somewhere on this site. Don't really remember where. LBB have you heard of this?

Thanks for responding LBB. I found a spot here talking about it and the serotonin in our bodys. Im going back to check on it. Thanks again.

Stress or trauma can be triggers for fibromyalgia. My symptoms started after the death of my mother and I had spent the previous 4 years taking care of her and my father while working full time and raising 3 kids. It was like my body held out for a while but after she died I kind of just fell apart.

I'm thinking that trauma, stress, etc can trigger fibro. About 15 years ago, I lost a very dear friend (she was in her thirties), my Dad and my father-in-law within about 1-1/2 years. Around that time I started having some problems which I blamed on other things. Those problems fit the description of fibro and over the years more symptoms have appeared. I was diagnosed with fibro last year, so yes, I believe that trauma/stress has a lot to do with it. Have you noticed that if you have a bad day, your symptoms are worse?

Gabbie, as a matter of fact yes I have you are right and also my temperment sure is worse. My friend said she could look at me when I walk inat work and know if she wanted to talk to me or not. I try not to be ugly but sometimes I can't help it. Also for most I'm sorry about all of you guys trauma/stress it's so horrible bless your hearts!

Yep dalejr62, I sometimes find it hard to hide how I'm feeling also. I also don't want to be "ugly", and I can start out being just fine, but sometimes something can trigger my grouchiness (I'm being polite) and it's at those moments I don't even want to be around myself! However, I do try to stay as upbeat as possible because I find that I feel better physically and mentally. I think the saying "it's not easy being me" fits people with fibro perfectly.

LOL Gabbie you made me smile. You are right. I never know what will trigger my "moods" Thank you!
