Hollylvn - November 9

My daughter, 11, has been complaining for quite some time of low back pain, and over the last 5 months of thigh cramps- bad ones. I read somewhere last night that she could possibly have fibro? Is this possible? I was diagnosed about 6 years ago, but I don't know that much about the effects, symptoms, or causes of fibro in adolescnet girls. Can you explain?
Thank you!

Has she started her Menstrual Cycle yet? Have you taken her to the Dr. to get checked out. It is possible for her to have FMS but I would definitley get her checked out. Let us know how she is doing. Take care and God bless!

I can remember having growing pains in that stage of my life. Maybe that's all it is. It would be better than Fibro.

If you were diagnosed with Fibro 6 years ago it could be possible that your daughter genetically could get it. I would take her to your doctor who diagnosed you and see what he has to say on the subject.

Hollylvn: Wow. I have a daughter, 10, who is going through very similar stuff. Her back has been so bad that I am lifting her up and down on the potty. She has had pain so bad it has left her unable to walk at times. It waxes and wains. Going on for about five months now. Also, her heal/ankle is now affected. She too has had the "growing pains" in her leg, although I have read that growing is not supposed to hurt! I am in the process of figuring out my own fibro situation: have one dr. that told me "fibro would be my guess" and my rheumatologist said I "certainly have alot of the signs." My problem is that it seems like a huge coincidence that we are both experiencing fibro stuff at the same time. (I sometimes wonder if she is emulating (sp) me, although I try not to compain in front of her.) I am taking her to a ped. rheumatologist this month. Bottom line: don't stop until you are comfortable with your info. My family says she is being a drama queen, but I know I must take her seriously. God bless you and your daughter.

Yes, do keep the communication open and also a diary would help the doctor in her treatment. Take Care.
