? Drug related: those stomach problems can very well be drug related, given that you have an autoimmune disease and possibly on some anti inflammatory medicines without an agent to protect your stomach, being tired, having pains, low energy, all can be related to your disease or depression/anxiety, other causes contribute such as thyroid problems, check with your doctor, wish you wellness

Fibromyalgia ?: 20y fem w. autoimmune c/o severe fatigue, IBS symptoms & "pelvic/back pain"; all signature symptoms of fibromyalgia, FM, whereat chronic systemic disorder &/or meds begets fatigue/inactivity/global soft tissue deconditioning which begets widespread ligamentous strain/pain which begets more inactivity & so on. Over time joint subluxations beget dysautonomia & IBS, i.e., the dynamic evolution of FM.

FM & EXERCISE REHAB: Aqua therapy is best because land-based exercise is often too painful for fibromyalgics; because of gravitational stress on soft tissues. As muscle mass & tone increase start walking, gentle yoga, tai chi & gentle trampoline. Avoid weight lifting.

In 2010, Rheumatologist Dr. Rodney Grahame edited a book, "Hypermobility, Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain", wherein several British physicians acknowledged the pathological relationship between Joint Hypermobility Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

Global deconditioning secondary to chronic illness/fatigue is an etiologic factor, among others, evoking fibromyalgia. Young women w. Joint Hypermobility Syndrome are particularly vulnerable as major joints further loosen via diminished soft tissue tone; arousing widespread ligament strain/pain.
