|Yes they make stuff up.|
|No they don't do that.|

Quoting GlowWormsMommy:" Not make stuff up but over diagnose"
Quoting pilot Jess:" I don't know if your mom or sister really have fibromialgia, but it is a real condition."every person I have ever met who supposedly has it tells me they have it after a bad nights sleep or excessive exercise... I am calling bull smurf on that one.
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" Do I think Fibromyalgia is made up? No. Do I think it's overly "diagnosed"? Yes. TO ME, fibromyalgia is a blanket diagnosis from when Dr's don't really know what's wrong."Not just talking about that but just what came to mind when I thought of made up diseases. It is annoying because my sister was literally running around all day yesterday and is sore from it today and is laying in my moms room saying she is having a fibro flare up so she won't do anything.
Quoting Unique Mama:" Wow....yeh that is not what fibromyalgia is AT ALL. It is a very serious disease that leaves people crippled ... [snip!] ... inactivity, I've been through that. It is definitely not fibro if the only symptom is soreness for a damn good reason >.<"Yes we all have different doctors. The thing is that all of the symptoms you listed can be caused by just insomnia or being overweight which I am (but I am doing something about it) and my mother is morbidly overweight but apparently lying around is the way to do something about it.
Quoting annabelle509:" Fibromyalgia is legit. and i think it is wrong to question someone who has invisible pain. because you ... [snip!] ... that your family has other conditions such as weight which does not help fibro and can add to the pain and so called laziness."My sister is just lazy. Even when she feels good she doesn't tend to do anything but sit around all day. Won't even help clean the house that she wrecks. It is rare that she exercises or does any running around. I was tested for it. It was an hour of the doctor poking me in places to see how I reacted to it. I am like you are jabbing your finger into my muscle.. yeah that is gonna hurt.
