Is this doctor correct

I was diagnosed a couple of years ago. Saw several docs at the time.

I saw a new pain consultant today and he has highlighted an accident which seems to be the trigger.

He left me with one question I can't find an answer to. I hope someone here can help.

He stated that although the accident was the trigger the fact I got Fibro means I was predisposed to get it anyway hence it would have happened sometime anyway.

Problem is I can't find anything that supports this opinion.
There is no genetic history of anything in my family and as I understood it from other docs the trauma of my accident was the trigger.

I can't find anywhere that agrees with the doc that because I got Fibro means I was going to get it at some point anyway.

Has anyone else been told the same or read similar anywhere?

Hi I also had a serious car accident a few years ago but have only been diagnosed last six months and the doctor said it was most likely from the car accident, its not hereditary and there still is no clear answer to the cause of FM according to GP (who was reading from N.H.S website) Good Luck
