Help! Fibromyalgia?
An_224689 posted:
So I'm 18 years old and though Fibromyalgia is typically seen in women 35 or older I figured it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility. I have ALL of the symptoms and it just seemed to make sense. I can't really afford to see a doctor about right now. However, a new possibility came up. My sister has always been taller than me, but recently she hasn't seemed so tall anymore. She's not old enough to be shrinking so I have to assume that I've gotten taller. (Yes, I've taken shoes and unlevel floors into account.) I didn't even consider it initially because I haven't grown at all in two years. But apparently growth spurts can happen that way. It would explain my all over soreness, but it doesn't really explain the other symptoms. Is it just that I'm not over the hormonal chaos of being this age? I hit puberty really early (11 years old) so I thought I'd be done by now so I'm looking for some other opinions.
