      Unfortunately, yes. Since before puberty. The doctors used to tell my mom it was growing pains. Finally diagnosed at 17. Been living with it for nearly 40 years now.

      I've been dealing with fibromyalgia pain since I was 19 years old.

      No, but in all fairness I had an extremely abusive childhood growing up in an apocalyptic sex cult. We weren't allowed to go to the doctor and if you got hurt it was God teaching you something and you had to write all these stupid reports and whatnot. Plus doctors were pretty much a no no unless it was life and death, and even then sometimes we couldn't go. So, it's possible that I ignored it. 🙁

      Probably although I wasn't diagnosed until I was 28. I do remember, as a child, stepping off curbs and feeling my knee go out; and having to wait until it stabilized to continue walking.

      I've been in pain with fibromyalgia-like symptoms almost my entire life. The official diagnosis finally came down when I was 22.

        @Gracie1217 Sounds familiar. I suffer from chronic inflammation also.
