Great observation, Eileen. Amazingly, in my research, I found that many doctors believe the aches and pains themselves are hypochondria and that fibromyalgia as a disease does not exist. Of the people I've known personnally to deal with the condition, without exception, they were all in fact dealing with very heavy emotional issues in their lives directly prior to onset of the painful symptoms. Clearly, more research is needed. I'm so glad people are open to the conversation.

I just read two articles in Psychology Today Feb.2010 regarding Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia expert Fred Friedburg of Stony Brook University describes the cognitive behavioral approach to treating this difficult condition, because there is no pharmaceutical intervention. "There is a connection between stress, overactivity, and pain. The goal of cognitive-behavioral thereapy is to achieve a balance between activity, rest, and leisure.Second article "The Struggle to Understand Hypochondria" according to Brian Fallon of Columbia there are three types of hypochondria I suggest reading the article, here is a short out take - and I can relate to this - People with a certain type of hypochondria resemble those with OCD. Going to the Dr. over and over again. On the other hand, the inability to explain multiple symtoms may be related to medicine's inadequate understanding of conditions like fibromyalgia. I found the article about Hypochondria to be extremely interesting especially if you do suffer with fibromyalgia.
