In brief: No
No, typically fibromyalgia requires certain elements in order to be diagnosed.
All to often it becomes a diagnosis where you are labelled without clear signs or symptoms. Understandably this is a clinical entity that we don't understand all that well but having chronic low back pain is not typically by itself consistent with fibromyalgia.

Hi - I am sorry. Chronic body ache is a sign of excess oxidative stress acidic body type. I will post the youtube video I did on this topic - If you alkalize your body and take supplements to improve glutathione levels in your body the pain will go away - Test your urine or salive pH and made sure this stays between 6.4-7.0 either with vit d3 supplements or aloe drinks. take NAC for glutathione

In brief: Not likely
If your only symptoms is back pain, the cause of the back pain shoud be looked into with examination and tests like a mri.
This will likey reveal the cause of your back pain. Fibromyalgia presenting with only back pain is unlikely.
