Sandy - July 29

I was hit by a car on Nov.5, 2004. Ever since then I have hurt worse and it is getting very bad. I have had to purchased extra equipment to help the pain. Is this normal?

I, too, was in an auto accident where I was rear-ended. There was a direct correlation between that and the Fibromyalgia. Apparently it does not cause it but can "wake it up". The accident I was in was 3 years ago. I received a small compensation for physical therapy and meds, but never an acknowledgement of the Fibromyalgia. Apparently it is hard to argue the connection.

my mother was in a rear end accident and it triggered fibromyalgia, I can;t say it worsended things rather it set it off.

I was in a rear end accident also and I believe that set mine off.

I was involved in an accident and was catapulted o the front of a bus I was standing to exit when the bus made a sudden stop. I have been attending physiotherapy and having deep heat massage for almost two years now. For the past six months I seemed to be regressing and I am in a lot more pain that I ever was. My doctor said that I have symptoms (many of them) for fibromalgia and he is sending me to a rheumatologist (sp?). My question is can I have developed this syndrome from the accident or was it already there waiting to happen? I have gone on a Candida cleanse and yeast free diet as suggested on web pages and have found that my IBS has completely cleared up and I am sleeping somewhat better. I was put on antidepressants but went off them when I gained weight. Since being on this diet I have lost that weight and then some. I find that I hurt in a number of places that are not one of the trigger points. Is that possible? Is there a site that gives any and all of the symptoms connected to this disorder?
