Currently, there is no consensus among experts about what causes fibromyalgia. Theories abound, but to date no one has been able to definitively show what causes this mysterious illness which results in wide-spread pain and overwhelming fatigue, as well as a host of other symptoms. It may be that fibromyalgia is caused by more than one event, or that scientists have simply not hit upon the exact trigger yet. There is currently much interest in fibromyalgia and its sister syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, so there is hope that one day experts will be able to determine the cause and an effective treatment or cure.
There are many theories as to what causes fibromyalgia and no clear answers at this time. However, research is ongoing and there is hope that research will point the way to a method of definitive testing for the condition, better treatment modalities or perhaps even a cure.
