Q&A: Can you die from fibromyalgia?

Question by Wile_E_Coyote: Can you die from fibromyalgia?
Can someone tell me about fibromyalgia? Can a person die from it? My wife is 46 and suffers from it. She seems to be getting worse and worse. She is in pain all the time and can’t really do anything any more. What can we expect in the years ahead? Does anyone know of a cure?

No it is neither fatal nor degenerative.
Fibromyalgia is also considered a syndrome, hence the diagnosis could eventually change based on the originating factors of the symptoms.
While it is chronic, the symptoms usually stabilize (though do not improve).
The cure depends on the originating factor, and it mainly focuses on curing the symptoms.
