In brief: Apples and oranges

Fibromyalgia is a persistent pattern of pain.
"normal aches" is a bad term. Aches are not a part of normal. Sometimes it is just a matter of stretching and warm up prior to activities, but if aches are persistent, see a physician knowledgeable in muscle and joint disease.
