Really good news.

Sounds promising. It could explain the predisposition if nothing else! Perhaps that alone is the genetic link!

I hope that she's right! Her research would hopefully find a means to test for fibro as well as treat it. However, it'll be years before we see the end result, and goodness knows if our insurance will cover it. Still, it's very encouraging to know that researchers are taking fibro seriously, as my rheumy said they were.
