I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 4 years ago and not very convinced. The rheumatologist did blood tests, then did some pressure points and looked at my hands and knees. He asked if I was double jointed and concluded that his assumption was fibromyalgia.
I have always been extremely flexible and so has my daughter who is 15. It's almost like we have mostly cartlidge instead of bone. For example. I can bend my middle toe all the way back to touch the top of my foot. Gross I know. This being said I noticed when my feet are relaxed I have very high arches but when I stand my feet flatten out completely. I think it's because nothing locks into place. I'm so flimsy that my food can't hold its shape. Which causes all kinds of foot and body pain.
This epiphany lead me to think about my spine. I've heard that pain derives from your spine. So perhaps since I'm so flimsy, my spine is somewhat collapsing on itself. Which is causing pain everywhere in my body. Same with my neck. It feels like I need a neckbrace to support the weight of my head. Maybe because it to is to flimsy to hold my head up.
Does this theory hold water? I'm willing to Investigate!!
