According to Mark Pellegrino, M.D., “The two most common factors for fibromyalgia are hereditary factors and trauma factors. Individuals can inherit fibromyalgia, or they can inherit a vulnerability that makes them more predisposed to getting fibromyalgia following a specific trigger. In my experience the most common cause or trigger of fibromyalgia is trauma, especially neck trauma that can be seen with a whiplash type injury. Other factors involved in developing fibromyalgia include infections, underlying rheumatic diseases, hormonal imbalances, and chemical exposures.”
