Do lumps on the back and shoulders result from having fibromyalgia

Hello. Thank you for writing.

Fibromyalgia is very difficult to diagnose. The main reason for this is because the symptoms of fibromyalgia are often in line with the symptoms of other illnesses, which leads to the individual being misdiagnosed. One of the most basic symptoms of fibromyalgia is widespread pain and a feeling of swelling and inflammation in the joints.  This is not the same as actual lumps. So, you should see your doctor for an evaluation of those areas. Below is a good resource I hope will be helpful.
