scarlet fever, scarletina

Postby luuluu » Tue Jun 16, 2009 9:10 pm

Hi

I just wondered if anyone now suffering fibro had scarlet fever or scarletina as a child. I was reading some info that linked them to fibro and I had scarletina when I was about 12/13 years old.

No but i did have Viral Polio!
My parents died a long time ago, but i have two large marks on my top left arm, you know the polio jags of old, everyone my age has one, but i have two.
Now i have spoken to someone who deals with polio, and she said you def had viral polio it must be in your medical file.
So guess what im asking GP when i go for my assessment next week.

HI THERE
I think a lot of viruses are linked to fibro: I am convinced that the case of slapped cheek or parvo virus caused me to get it; all my symptoms arrived after that; :oops:

Hiya,

I had what the doctor said was mild scarlet fever/scarletina when I was about 7 or 8. I'd forgotten about that until a fwe weeks ago, when I was listing all the illnesses/accidents and traumatic times in my life; trying to fathom out when I may have deveoped fibro. I'm still clueless though lol. My mum always said I was a lazy child, and whinged a lot about sore legs when she dragged us off on her very long walks! I was never any good at PE or gymnastics or anything and just put it down to being a non-flexible person!

What was the info you were reading? It would be interesting to see what it says. A lot of the websites on fibro do say that many people seem to have a predisposition for things like fibro and all it takes is some kind of trauma or illness to trigger the fibro off - many people have had no symptoms until things like a car accident and whiplash. Some cancers are like that - lie dormant until a bump, and then it becomes active. The human body is still such a mystery so much of the time!

Hi

Someone at work had mentioned to me they had seen something linking rhematic fever and scarlet fever to fibro but she didn't know where so I just googled 'scarlet fever fibromyalgia' and there was quite a few sites saying there could be a link. I have put my fibro down to a horse riding accident but whe I think about it I have migraines from 11/12 years old, was always tired and couldnt do a lot of runnin around in PE at school. Maybe its always been there but the riding accident made it worse. I'm not sure. I'm still trying to find answers to this god awful thing in the vain hope of finding a way to get rid of it :roll:

Hi, I had scarletina when I was about 8 yrs old. When I think back since then I have always had tiredness and aches and pains that were just put down to growing up.

Wow, yes I had Scarletina as a child too. I always suffered from what my doctor called growing pains from about the age of 7 or 8. He told my mum I was trying to get off school (in the middle of the summer holidays!!) My legs and arms were a constant source of pain when growing up, my knee joints used to lock together and my groin was absolute agony, I was always at the doctors. I have also had Shingles later on in life which I believe has also been possibly linked to FM too. Unfortunely, I have been involved in a few car accidents too resulting in whiplash, and had a number of surgeries, so I think I pretty much tick every box when it comes to possible triggers for FM.

I've never had scarlet fever but had whooping cough when i was small.

I had a really bad chest infection when i was 22 and i had whiplash from a car accident when i was 24. I had a month of work about 3 months before my accident because of terrible arm pains and fatigue but looking back i started with pains in my back when i was 17.

It would be nice if we knew what caused this condition and have a drug made which eases all our symptons

hi
i was just reading all your posts and everything you said is the same as what i had when i was younger.
i had scarlet fever at 8 years of age and from what i was told was quite poorley with it, i also had mumps,german measels,and whooping cough all within a few years of having scarlet fever.
i also had a collapsed lung when i was 12 and i was in hospital for a long time.
so all of this could of stayed dormat and when i had a car crash in 2004 it stated the fibro off in 2008? could this be possible?

Hi, ive recently been diagnosed with FM but it was a visit to the GP in April that started the diagnosis off.I had a rash from had to toe and he diagnosed scarlet fever but after I kept coming back with the rash he was more interested in the joint pains which I had for years. He said that the symptoms of FM can sometimes be the same as scarlet fever but its def FM and your body reacting to a bad flare-up.
