In brief: Yes, but treatable

Fibromyalgia is a type of amplified pain syndrome that in severe cases can cause allodynia (inappropriate pain to light touch).
Rheumatologist may be able to help you.Often people with fibromyalgia have poor sleep habits (or poor quality sleep), do not do any regular mild exercise, may need a physical therapist, and could have undiagnosed/untreated depression or anxiety. Often, it hurts all over.
