Growing Pains ~ Fibromyalgia?

Back in the day, they called it growing pains.

Well, I had enough growing pains to be ten feet tall. But there was never any evidence of a problem, just pain after exertion. Several times during the 5th and 6th grade, I had excruciating chest pain. This pain took my breath away and felt like I was having a heart attack.

Mom would come pick me up from school.

By the time we arrived at the doctor or the ER, I was fine. The doctor’s diagnosis was “Growing Pains”. Who knew that it was the beginning of a lifetime of pain.

I’m gearing up to write a book so this month, please allow me to re-blog posts from my internet fibro community. Here’s more about the relationship of “growing pains” to Fibromyalgia.
