Triggering fibromyalgia

What causes fibromyalgia? No one really seems to know. We do know what triggers it – stress, a viral or bacterial infection, traumas such as a death in the family or an automobile accident. Why these events trigger fibro in some people but not in others is not yet fully understood. One theory is that we are genetically predisposed to develop it, because of some other physical abnormality.

One of the things I'm finding with most, if not all, fibromites is that they have some kind of hormone imbalance. A common factor is Thyroid disfunction. Another common factor I've found is abuse, whether it be physical, sexual, or emotional inflicted on the fibromite in their past.

I agree with you, Kimberly. I didn't have problems with fibro until my ovaries were removed during my hysterectomy (I was 42 at the time) 3 years ago. It was like I ran into a brick wall and all of my hormones suddenly came to a dead halt! The intense pain from fibromyalgia came on quick following that and has not let up even for one day. OUCH!
