The husband of a friend of mine has fibro. He's a Gulf War I vet who also has PTSD. I imagine with all the Vets with PTSD, the numbers of men being diagnosed with it will raise as the VA recognizes, diagnoses, and treats PTSD properly.

Blessings,
Heidi

Proverbs 3: 5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. "

I think my dad had fibro. He was always tired and achy. I also think my partner has it - same reasons - poor sleep, poor memory, muscle pain.

It's not catching, is it? emoticon

My dad had fibro and we have a couple of members here who have it - greenthumb1 and freaker1. They have a different and helpful approach to the disease.

So far I don't know any men with Fibro other than those on my Fibro Group on Facebook. I think more would be diagnosed if they wouldn't just categorize their aches and pains as simply a sign of getting older. I also believe that men are generally less likely to come forward with their signs and symptoms and then go without a diagnosis. (The "Macho thing".

Take Care Now! Kristy
