Hi Caroline -

I was diagnosed at 17 although I may have had Fibromyalgia as early as 13. The best recommendation I have is to take your daughter to a pediatric rheumatologist. My rheumatologist treats children as young as 6. They can prescribe meds to help with sleep, like a very low dosage of trazodone. Don't take no for an answer - keep pressing until you find a doctor that will treat your daughter.

Good Luck and (((hugs))) to you and your daughter,

Jessie
