    "Fibromyalgia (FM) is a stress-related functional somatic syndrome"  Absolute nonsense, it 'can' be a contributory factor, but it IS not caused by this.  Fibromyalgia is a proper physical condition with a collection of symptoms that everyone experiences differently.  Both physical and emotional support is vital, but what you've got to remember, if you're living with pain etc. 24/7 it's inevitable that the mind will be affected and that's where depression etc. come into it.   Come back when you've read Fibromyalgia support websites and maybe you'll then realise what it's all about.
