In brief: No
The jo-1 antibody can be associated with a form of polymyositis which is an autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease.
Fibromyalgia is a very painful condition in which muscles, ligaments, and tendons are highly sensitive and can hurt but the condition is neither autoimmune nor inflammatory.

In brief: No
The jo-1 antobody is seen in some people with an autoimmune condition that affects the muscles.
Fibromyalgia is not thought to be an autoimmune disorder . If the jo-1 antibody is positive, this would argue against the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. There are no tests for fibromyalgia.
