They don’t know for sure what causes fibro, but there are links to trauma(eg child abuse) Epstein Barr virus, (mononucleosis), and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. I have had multiple traumas, severe mononucleosis as a teenager, and also rheumatoid arthritis.

i wonder what started mine- lots of colds when I was younger, then surgeries, dental work, hospital infection....plus drama from family...i do not know.

my sister has chronic fatigue , so did my dad....

what I find interesting is that most of us have the same symptoms...

look up -self management classes for pain....

I believe mine started due to alot of respitory infections given antibiotics for years then mono in high school. Then dr told me Epstein Barr. Ive had it for as long as i can remember but nobody knew then what it was. Even in grade school i never wanted to do much cuz too tired. Im 61 now and remember always hurting

I had a lot of bad things happen in my family and went into a real depression. Just as I started to feel better than I had in ages and delt with all the trauma I started with shoulder pain one Morning and by the evening I could hardly move. It got worse from there. I have learnt to work with it and don't use pain meds regular but do have it in if I need. Stress still makes it worse. Like this week im having to isolate as i had a positive lateral flow test its not conclusive so im waiting for results from a PCR. Waiting is stressful not helping. Going to a rheumatologist would be helpful. Some people need pain relief all the time some not. Not sure if that's any help x
