Yes. We do not completely understand fibromyalgia. However we do know that trauma can trigger the onset of fibromyalgia.
YES and NO. Fibromyalgia as diagnosed is based upon discovering 18 or more tender spots on the body. A whiplash can contribute or even predispose one to all kinds of trigger points.

Poasible. True fibro is a syndrome of overexcitation of the nervous system. Normal stimuli become painful. As such, many fibro patients become extra sensitive to new painful insults.
