Re: Where are you in the birth order?

No one else has been diagnosed, but I'm about 100% sure my brother does -- he's fourth in line.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I'm the last of five, my sister who is fourth has also been diagnosed. The older three have never had it checked. The oldest two are fine but I would not be surprised if the third in line has it too. I believe my mother had it because she was always complaining of aches and pains but never went to a doctor. I wish she did because she might still be here today.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I'm the oldest of three...one of my brothers died at 31, the other does not have fibro. Then again, they are half-brothers.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

Thanks for all the answers so far. I was wondering if the first borns would be included. My oldest sibling has the rhinitis stuff and was at one time diagnosed as having lupus and then later that was called a mistake, but for awhile there she had horrible joint pain. She had to quit for awhile there, but overall she's kept going hard. It would be interesting to know where everyone else is in the birth order. Thanks again.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I am an only child. My dad and granny are deceased but they had the same type of symptoms as me. My oldest child is showing symptoms of it also.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I am fourth in line of 6 children. Two older surviving sisters both have fibro as do I. I also have Lupus which is the case for about 25% of Lupus patients.

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I was the baby. One sister, deceased, didn't have it. Mom was healthy. Mine was caused by breast implants so it wasn't genetic in my case

Re: Where are you in the birth order?

I am the "first" of 3. I put first in quotations because I actually do have an older sister but she was adopted at birth so we weren't raised together.

I am the only one with "fibro". I think my younger sister may have chronic fatigue, as she gets the sore throats etc, she also has IBS.
