While the exact causes of fibromyalgia are unknown, there are a number of factors that are thought to contribute to the development of the condition. When answering the question – what causes fibromyalgia, we have to consider the following:

Abnormal pain messages: The central nervous system is responsible for sending messages throughout the body. It is believed that people with fibromyalgia may process pain messages differently which could result in the feelings of and sensitivity to pain. It is unclear why, but could be the result of changes to chemicals in the nervous system.
Chemical imbalances: Research has discovered that people with fibromyalgia have unusually low levels of certain hormones in their brain. Low levels of these hormones (serotonin, noradrenaline, and dopamine) can disrupt things like mood, appetite, sleep, and your stress response.
Sleep issues: Sleep concerns are tricky when it comes to fibromyalgia, because they may be both a symptom and a cause. It may be difficult to distinguish which came first, but some theories suggest that poor sleep may exacerbate pain and other complications of fibromyalgia.
Genetics: Some research has pointed to genetics as playing a role in the development of fibromyalgia. This means that you may be predisposed to develop the condition and more likely to develop fibromyalgia after a triggering event. This theory follows the adage, “genes load the gun, environment pulls the trigger.”
Stressful events: Both physical and emotional stress are thought to be possible triggers for fibromyalgia. Events like an injury, a virus, giving birth, having surgery, or experiencing a troubled relationship or death of a loved one trigger a stress response in the body and may contribute to the onset of fibromyalgia.
