Trigger Event for Fibro
5 Replies
mmeyer - October 30

Can fibro start with one event? Two years ago while eatting breakfast (bagel and coffee) I felt a strange sensation crawl up my neck inside my spine. 3 minutes later my autonomic system wasn't working. I felt very weird.....bowel problems, balance problems, hyperventalating, etc. Went to the ER but they didn't have much to say. I stayed in bed for the rest of the week losing 10 lbs b/c of nausea. Returned to work but was back in the hospital when strange feelings started in both elbows, numb arms and face, and autonomic problems. Could fibro start this way?

Anything traumatizing whether physiclal or emotional can be a trigger for the start of fibromyalgia....im sorry to hear about your expeierince it sound sreally scary...it oculd be something form years and years ago catching up with you too i beleive....i also think they (doctors scientists) need to do more research about this condition....

Mine did not come on suddenly, it was much more gradual over a very stressful period in my life. It also took a while to diagnose because I would have sporadic symptoms that I did not initially realize were related. Sore parts in my body, IBS, flu-like symptoms without ever getting the flu, etc.

I think it is really an cumulative effect. Some of us have super sensitive systems that start to break down over time. I was always healthy until I went through a difficult period where I lost my home, my job, my love. My whole life changed, it was very stressful to say the least. after about a year or so, I started getting stabbing pains & other strange symptoms, that was 5+ years ago.
