In brief: Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a real but somewhat rare disorder, that is severely over-diagnosed.
Most people have myofascial pain (pain from soft tissue like muscles, tendons, ligamnets) that can occur in many areas of the body with widespread referred pain patterns. You need to be evaluated to see if you have one of the more common myofascial syndromes before you get labeled inappropriately with fm.
