Question family members diagnosed with fibro

Hi. Just curious if anyone here has family members that have been diagnosed with fibro. I just learned that my cousin, who lives in a different state, has fibro. I am not close to her to ask when she was diagnosed or to get any details. But, I was just curious if its genetic or if its been proven genetic.

My daughter was diagnosed and treated for fibro years before I was. I admit I was skeptical because she is a drama queen of great porportions; feel sad about that now.
There was a time I thought they slapped the "fibro" label on anything they couldn't pin point. I'm not sure if that's true or not but thats how I felt and I didn't have a lot of empathy. That's karma for you! Now she doesn't even speak to me and we have much in common, more than ever. (No daughter advice pls; I've tried everything, sore subject which of course I brought up)Thanks.

My sister has been dealing with chronic pain way before I was diagnosed, I'm not 100% sure she has fibro tho. We are not very close to be honest, she is just my half sister, and is not very easy to even have a conversation with her. She's 10 years older than I am, maybe that's the reason we are not compatible at all. She's in constant pain almost all the time... wish we could get closer, but I don't think that will ever happen!

I have two family members that have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. One is a sibling and the other is a second cousin. It doesn't worry me at all in terms of genetics. It's not like I am going to avoid reproducing just because people in my family have health problems. There are worse afflictions to have.

My father was actually diagnosed with fibro before I was. He didn't admit it at first though, and thought it was just "some crap they made up." Of course, he knows now that it's a true diagnosis. We're able to talk about the symptoms. Very clear it's the same thing.
