Yes, it can cause it: The pain you describe fits very weel with the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. The precise mechanisme is not clear at this time.

Could be: Fibromyalgia is not well understood. There is a test for 18 tender points that can present a diagnostician with a more definitive diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I would start with your doctor and see if other tests may have to be run.
