In brief: See below
The symptoms of fibromyalgia include widespread pain above and below the waist, characteristic tenderness in certain areas of the body.
Other symptoms include fatigue, problems with the bowel or bladder or both, depression, concentration difficulties, poor sleep. The cause of fibromyalgia is not known but it is thought to be a result of an overly sensitive nervous system.

Fibromyalgia, FM, sufferers commonly have: femaleness, youth, first degree female relatives with FM, obesity, oft multiple childbirths, pelvic girdle injury from MVA/falls/lifting accidents, prolonged sedentariness & weak soft tissues due to illness or injury & Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. Unifying factors: soft tissue injury in body tower with unstable joints repetitively stressed by gravity.
Dr. Laurence Badgley
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.

In brief: Man y things
There are classic signs and symptoms described which are rarely found in practice (at least for me).
In short, it is a "bag of worm", you rule out everything to diagnose it.
