Anyone here with FM that does NOT have trauma in their early life? I heard trauma is a huge risk factor and just wondering if that's true for everyone...

      My trauma was Weight loss surgery.

      I didn’t have any trauma before my fibro started! I did have some later that worsened my condition, but it had nothing to do with the onset. Everyone is different! It might be a common initial cause but it’s certainly not a requirement!

      I don't have any trauma from my childhood but i was in an abusive relationship in my early 20's. My doctor said that is more than likely what caused it.

      My dr said 90% of her patients with fibro have trauma

      It is like your body knows what happened before you do.

      I do have trauma but never heard about it causing fibro before.

      I don't think that stress trauma or diet is everyone's contributing factor I feel like that's just their way of continuing to gaslight us by saying it's in our head

      I have fibromyalgia but don't have any specific trauma from my childhood! The only thing I think could have brought it on for me is that I had scoliosis surgery at age 11. I guess that's physically traumatic, but I don't think a lot of people consider that childhood trauma haha

        @Jas.777 I would consider major surgery at age 11 a trauma. Both physical and mental. Going through surgery is traumatic for anyone, especially a child.

      I have trauma but never knew fibromyalgia was a possible outcome till I got diagnosed.

        @Mel9515 then I did research & it was mentioned a good amount.
