PVPS and family history of Fibromyalgia


#1

How many on this forum have themselves or have a family member with Fibromyalgia? Curious if having a predisposition to overactive nerves correlates to developing PVPS.

Yes, my mother has fibromyalgia. Lots of anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome in my family as well. And I had pre-existing “interstitial cystitis” with pelvic floor dysfunction before my vas. All these conditions have hyperactive nerve involvement and they are all risk factors for chronic post surgical pain from any surgery. Studies have shown that. I didn’t know that before my vas. If you search for “chronic post operative pain” and “risk factors” you will find it.
