Certain co-factors predispose the evolution & development of Fibromyalgia by magnifying chronic gravitational repetitive stress of deconditioned soft tissues: Obesity, joint instabilities resulting from ligament injuries, Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, pelvic girdle instability, & spinal scoliosis all stress & strain the upright body musculoskeletal tower.

Have a full workup from your general care practitioner to determine if fibromyalgia is the correct diagnosis.
If so, pain management, preferably with as few pills as possible is of utmost importance. Here is the website of the American Academy of Pain Management: http://www.aapainmanage.org/
