I think it's possible. I have had strange symptons since as long as I can remember and doctors kept telling me maybe my thyroid was messed up and that i was overweight. Tests always come back negative. In my twenties I was finally diagnosed with fibro but only after my roommate told me about it. Doctors never listen to me and keep telling me its depression but I don't think depression is the cause of all of it. I found out recently that 2 other people in my family have it too. I don't think doctors know enough about it and they think that everything is in our heads. I am having big problems right now with fibrofog and having the wrong words come out when I am speaking so am going for neurological testing. I am 38 yrs old and still struggling with doctors listening to me so keep looking for a doctor until you find one that listens. I moved to a new town because the docs in my old one were jerks. I hope you get some answers and good luck.View Thread
