In brief: Not with fibromyalgi

No association with fibromyalgia but somatic depression can independently alter leptin levels.

In brief: Connected yes

The metabolic effects of leptin resistance include a diminished TSH secretion, a suppressed T4 to T3 (liothyronine) conversion, an increase in reverse t3, (liothyronine) an increase in appetite, an increase in Insulin resistance and an inhibition of lipolysis (fat breakdown).
These effects of leptin resistance on thyroid hormones contribute to the drop in TSH and T3 (liothyronine) levels - and cause thyroid induced myopathy(fibro) depression.
