In brief: Guesstimating

? if "new problem" is fibromyalgia (FM) related.
Cause FM "officially unknown", but joint hypermobility, childbirth, mechanical injuries, obesity & prolonged illnesses common in FM sufferers. Unifying aspect is soft tissue weakness, especially low back & pelvis ligaments & gravitational impress on loose joints. If "new problem" can be associated w. these biomechanical dynamics, high likelihood.
