Hi Dan, welcome to healing well. I am Beth, a moderator from the fibromyalgia board. Just saw your post and thought I'd pipe in my 2cents.
Headaches would not cause or lead to a fibromyalgia diagnosis; it's more of a "ruled-out-everything-else" syndrome. It consists of many aspects, including muscles aches/pains, anxiety, irritible bowel syndrome, and many many others.
Why don't ya stop over at the fibro board and read up on some of the posts. It may help you to better understand your symptoms and help you to ask better questions at your next dr. visit. There is no cure, no perfect medication, for fibromyalgia. We only treat our symtpoms, as many and diverse as they are. So read up and post to the kind friendly folks over there and see what you can gather.
Nice meeting you and welcome again,
It's not that migraines are causing or leading to Fibro, but that Fibro and migraines can be a package deal where a lot of migraineurs also have fibro and even depression. There are several medications that you can take that will help with both the Fibro issues and Migraine pain.

Thanks Sara and I am sorry to hear what you and your family are going through. Sometime I will tell you what all meds I have tried and maybe you can tell me some I have not tried. I won't bother you with that now though. Thanks for writing.
