In brief: Fibromyalgia can aff
Although a thorough medical evaluation is indicated to rule out other causes for the symptoms, fibromyalgia can be present in the young adult population and is best treated by a sensitive team familiar with the different treatment options.
In this way symptoms can be effectively managed so as to support both function and quality of life.

The physician(s) involved will get a sense of what a Gordian knot is. The multitude and variety of sx. from taste alteration to sleep diff. for life takes an admirable, bright Physician in the truest sense. I basically agree and wish pt. and physician the best.

In brief: Not known
Fibromyelgia is a "bag of worm", though there are definite criteria set as well as few approved medications in the market .
Clinically, all criteria never fit and pts never get complete pain relief sometimes, it is chronic pain syndrome or depression mimicking it. Aerobic exercises is best. I would suggest rather than thinking about it, start aerobic exercises - it will help for all above conditi.
