In brief: Unlikely

Fibromyalgia is a relatively poorly understood disease, but is not thought to be caused by inguinal hernia repair.
Any surgical procedure however is likely to be more painful and have a longer recovery in patients with fibromyalgia compared to those without. Hope this helps!

In brief: No

No, fibrmylagia is a more systemic disorder, not from a localized trauma following inguinal hernia surgery.
