Pam, my rheumy told me the other day that fibro intensifies all the other pain from other things like my osteoarthritis. I have it in my hands, neck and back. Of course I don't know how much pain it would cause if I didn't have fibro.
It's hard to sort all the pain out as to what is causing what pain when you have multible things that cause pain. Obviously you can't blame fibro for all of it. They don't know what causes fibro but many have gotten it after some trauma in their life.
luv and hugs
