What's the relationship between post-traumatic stress disorder and fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia & PTSD. In my years as a trauma expert I have seen that every fibromyalgia client I have had, had a trauma history. Doctors can't say what causes the disorder but I would say that if you resolve traumatic memories, it will likely help. PTSD often has insomnia sx and we know that insomnia lowers the pain threshold, so any pain feels worse. I recommend an EMDR Therapist along with regular follow up w rheuma.
They can have an. Interplay with one condition impacting the other. I have seen some military women who had both conditions.
