Is it true that stress and trauma can make FM flare ups worse or even cause them? I have PTSD from a trauma that occurred several years ago, and it seems like whenever something triggers it or I get really stressed out trying not to think about it I get sent into a really bad flare up. Recently something triggered my PTSD really bad (around Thanksgiving) and I have been having a lot of flashbacks and triggers and have been in a constant state of stress and it seems like whenever I start to feel better another one comes along and it seems like my pain gets worse. Is this actually a fact or all in my head?
