9 Possible Causes of Fibromyalgia To Discuss With Your Doctor

Glutathione Deficiency

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant our bodies produce, but if your body isn’t producing enough then this could be a reason for developing fibromyalgia.

Traumatic Events and Stress

The adrenal glands become fatigued when a person undergoes a traumatic event or suffers from stress. Often fibromyalgia symptoms first begin to appear following a traumatic experience in a person’s life and stress is well-known to exacerbate the symptoms.


While there is no scientific evidence to say that fibromyalgia is inherited, our genes may make us predisposed to the condition if the environmental factors are present. Studies have found that identical twins are 15 percent more likely to develop the condition if their twin has it.
