Your probably need to speak with a lawyer, but my bet would be NO. Besides, I don't think anything can "give" you Fibromyalgia. In addition, the fact that most medical professionals don't really believe it exists (they see it as the scapegoat of pill junkies and hypochondriacs) might complicate things a little. The back injury may be a different story if you can collect resonable medical evidence close to the time of the supposed injury. (I.e. an X-Ray showing new damage from seven years ago).

My advice--talk to a personal injury attorney. Your local phone book should have about 19,000,000 of them. They offer free consults--most over the phone or they will come to you.

Fibro can, and often is the result of an injury. Saying that nothing can "give" you fibromyalgia is the same as saying nothing can give you post traumatic stess syndrome. If you have any question about winning a comp case search IWCC (Illinois workers comp comish) for Fibromyalgia and you will see it has happened (1999). It is difficult if you were diagnosed long after the accident. There has to be doctors that will testify to a causal connection. Find a comp attorney. Also, as far as medical proffessionals believing it exists; it is recognised by the AMA among other groups since the '80's. There is enough proof it exists if you do the research.I'd say that is a bit harsh of an answer to the persons question. My answer is definitely yes! The reason I say that is that I got both a disability settlement and S.S. disability after 8 years. I had a good attorney and a lot of personal conviction. I also learned to not listen to the nay sayers. It is easy to get wrapped up in what others, doctors etc, think or say. I knew how I felt and know it isn't a lie. It is something real. They just haven't got a handle on it.

There are too many people who suffer with it, what ever you want to call it. It all boils down to pain, sometimes excruciating. As the person above suggests, it is good to document with a doctor. If it is worker's comp., you must tell the doctor. I don't really know your situation. If you want more specific data, let me know.

Unfortunately, we do not yet know what causes fibromyalgia.However, this isn't to suggest that nothing is known about what causes fibromyalgia. The problem, currently, is that there is no consensus among experts. For example:Some believe that fibromyalgia follows a traumatic experience, one that is stressful and puts a strain on a person, physically or emotionally.Some believe there is a connection between fibromyalgia and repetitive injuries.Some believe it is linked with an illness. For instance, fibromyalgia is not uncommon among people already diagnosed and being treated for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or other autoimmune diseases.Some believe that abnormal levels of Substance P in spinal fluid play a part. Substance P is a nerve transmitter that helps send and amplify pain signals to and from the brain.Some believe that fibromyalgia is not necessarily brought on by anything neither trauma, illness, or injury - it just simply develops.Presumably, as more is uncovered about fibromyalgia, more will be learned about its underlying causes.

What happens when your injured when you already have fibromyalgia?

Often people with Fibromyalgia find that hey heal slower than healthy people. If you sustain an injury make sure to have it checked out by a Dr and follow their orders. Do as much as you can to rest the injured area and allow for healing. The more stress you experience the harder it will be to heal. Make sure to follow a good diet and a regular routine. If needed, you may want to seek out physical therapy to help you regain strength and learn how to properly use your body to avoid further injury.
