Can 7 year old son have it too

Last August my 7 yr old son started having migraines. They became bad and frequent enough that he had to have an MRI of his brain, we went to a pediatric eye specialist and he had a spinal tap. All test came back fine. The headaches started to go away in December but the past month or so I notice he is very stiff in the morning and complains that his hips and legs hurt. Well last week he started to say he hurts all over especially in the morning. By the time I pick him up from school he is fine and FULL of ENERGY. I don't know if he hears me saying this and is just trying to get out of going to school or if he really hurts. Has anyone ever heard of a child this young having fibro? I have read about juvenile FMS but everything I have read talks about older kids.

yes kids can get Fibro. so sad it's bad enough for adults to have. but kids shouldn't have to go through this. You may want to have him checked out. does he have the pressure points?

Yes, kids can have Fibro. I am always nervous when my kids show signs of it.

I pray that your son does not have it. He may just be having growing pains too.

I'm hoping it's growing pains like Pammyann suggests. I hate to see children hurting! Hope all turns out well.

Re: Can 7 year old son have it too

Thanks for the replies and concern. I didn't mention in my original post that he also has terrible twitching when he is falling asleep. I will have him checked ASAP. I will keep you posted. In the mean time Prayers Please.
