The brains of fibromyalgia patients show structural and behavioral differences from those of healthy individuals, but it is unclear whether the brain anomalies cause fibromyalgia symptoms or are the product of an unknown underlying common cause. Some research suggests that these brain anomalies may be the result of childhood stress, or prolonged or severe stress. 

Fibromyalgia has been recognized as a diagnosable disorder by the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Rheumatology. It is recognized as a central nervous system disorder, is described as a ‘central sensitisation syndrome’ caused by neurobiological abnormalities which act to produce physiological pain and cognitive impairments as well as psychological symptomatology. Just like Lyme Disease, there are  members of the medical community who do not consider fibromyalgia a disease because of a lack of abnormalities on physical examination and the absence of objective diagnostic tests even though the patient are complaining of pain and symptoms.
