Hello, I'm Morgan and this is my first time on here and I was jus curious as to how old some of you were when you started to have symptoms of fibronyalgia. I am only 20 and I was diagnosed a few weeks before I graduated high school a few years ago. It took about four years for a doctor to actually pin point what was going on with me, because I had been in pain and suffered from chronic migraines since around the age of 15. I was definiately surprised to find out that I have fibromyalgia, but it all really does make sense now. I haven't heard of anyone near my age suffering from this though, so I'm just wondering if there is anyone out there who is younger or has had experience with this condition at a young age? I just can't seem to adjust to all that goes on in my body yet, so I thought someone may be able to help me out. Thanks so much!View Thread
