Fibromyalgia and strep
0 Replies
Happymum - January 19

I read the query whether there is a link between strep and fibromyalgia. My daughter who is now 17 was diagnosed with F when she was 10( 1st time they saw it in a child that age). I disagreed as (I have a paediatric nurse background and now work in infection control) her illness commenced with a sore throat illness followed 3 weeks later by swollen ankle , other symptoms then, muscle pain, fatigue, joint and bone pain, nose bleeds. I was convinced she had rheumatic fever or at the least was suffering a post strep episode. In summary she endednup on penicillin for 6 months and then had a tonsillectomy. She has been symptom free and well for 7 years. My son who had muscle pain and fatigues around the same time was diagnosed Wit chronic fatigue. He had a tonsillectomy and is well and symptom free also for the last 7 years. Other members of my extended family have had similar experiences.
