There is some research saying that FM is an auto-immune disease.
Many have asked what is it like with Fibromyalgia? My response, have you ever had the flu? I mean like my son has at times, HIGH fevers, 103+....that lays you out for several days. Not just physically, but mentally puts you in la-la-land?
Well, I'd much rather get the flu! Because it's then that I actually feel better! Even if I just get a horrible head cold, it's like my immune system finally kicks in and fights something else instead of fighting myself.
