Hi djjl and welcome. Many have gotten fibro after a physical or mental trauma so I don't know why you couldn't get it. Some people can't relate anything to their getting fibro.
Read the fibro 101 thread, second on first page, it contains lots of great info including a list of symptoms that you could print out and check the ones you have and take it to the doc if you find you have many of the symptoms.
You need a doc that believes in fibro, there are some that still don't believe it is a real illness and think it is all in our heads. It doesn't matter what kind of doc some use internist, rheumatologist or PCP. My GP dxd me after ruling everything else out, which is also in the fibro 101 thread under what else could it be.
If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
luv and hugs
