What, if any, are other conditions you are dealing with along with fibro and the ages they started? I wonder if come up with a pattern. Mine are:
Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, age 12
Vitiligo, age 14
Uterine fibroids, age 39
GERD, age 38
I also suspect early celiac or gluten sensitivity since childhood
Stomach ulcer, age 46
Degen. disc disease, age 40
fibromyalgia, age 50
My whole spine and most of my joints are loose and very noisy. It's like i'm bone on bone with no cartilage or cushioning parts anymore.

My word---you poor thing! A lifetime of pain. It doesn't seem fair. Good good luck! My disease pales in comparison to yours!

Tina, you and I share a lot of the same conditions. Another I forgot to mention is TMJ syndrome.

High blood pressure- 36
Gout= 39
Ovary cyst= 39
Gallbladder removed= 39
Low TSH level but not enough for treatment, example: if the range was 0.41-2.0 my level would be 0.40

I had a friend telling me I may have Hashimoto's, but my endo would not test me for it. and would treat the TSH level, sometimes I was lower than that. But no one touched it. So with everyone here with it, I may have it and don't know it yet. it took me 7 months to get diagnose with fibro
