I was dxed with FM when I was 39. I am now 49,soon to be the big 5-0. I have been going along pretty well for the past several years cuz all of my symptoms were pretty much problems I have encountered before. That is certainly not the case these days. It seems like I have new things popping up all the time! They all seem alot more intense, too. I told the doc that I am really worried about what else is going to happen. He says not to worry that we'll keep on top of it. I was checking other sites about FM and came across just this problem and it said that as you age, it does get worse, but more than likely it is from the problems that come with age. I have had an awful lot of trouble with my legs for the past few months. Because of the pain, stiffness and weakness in them, I am really getting worried that I will soon become unable to walk. Scares the daylights out of me!! Anyone else out there who has had this stuff for a long period of time finding their FM getting worse as you age? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this you. Hugs to you all!
