Doc thinks i may have it!!

Hi al,i've just been to the docs today and he suspects i may have Fibromyalgia,mainly because i have a hump on my back,but my Gt Nan,Nan,Mum,Sis have this lump.As hes never seen anyone with such a family line of humps!!
I have been referred to an Orthopaedics and i just feel kinda freaked out by this.We all get pains in our hump and neck and shoulder pain but every doc who my mum and sis has seen has just shrugged this off saying its a fatty lump or its where all the nerves meet.
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone else?

Re: Doc thinks i may have it!!

Hi Danni:
I had a fatty tumor on my back that the doctor removed. He actually had to liposuction it out since it was so large. When I read your post, I began to wonder if people with FMS are prone to this. How odd that your female relatives are suffering from a bump on THEIR backs as well. I never had any pain in the lump, however.
