What causes it?

The exact cause of fibromyalgia is still unknown and the subject of research, but it is believed to be caused by a variety of factors including, but not limited to:

  • Genetics. Because fibromyalgia tends to run in families, there may be certain genetic mutations that may make you more susceptible to developing the disorder.
