Fibromyalgia

If you have this, at what age did you first notice it? How long did it take to get a diagnosis?

  • I was not diagnosed until I was 15. However early symptoms started to show around 5 or 6... The doctors at the time had no idea what it was or what caused it, for years they said it was all in my head... Then they started actually doing tests around 10 or so... All of which were negative. It was around the time when Fibro was first making it's way in to the medical journals and books that my doctor broke down and said "I don't believe Fibromyalgia exists, but if it does, you have it"
