For many fibro sufferers, “How did I get like this?” is an everyday question. Fibro has a lot of possible causes but one which I feel often gets overlooked is Trauma. Particularly in childhood.

More and more research is being done into the possible links between trauma and conditions such as arthritis, lupus and Fibromyalgia. What I want to talk about in the attached article is how traumatic experiences in childhood may leave some people highly susceptible to Fibro in later life, and what can be done about it.
