I am SC for a back injury. My doc says I my have fibromyalgia (caused by my injury). Can I file a claim for fibromyalgia even though its so closely connected to my back injury?

Absolutely- it seems that the doc finds it to be secondary to or caused by the SC back injury - a very good basis for a claim.

The "close connection" doesn't matter and helps the claim if this is a separate and ratable disabilty caused by or secondary to the SC injury.

I have a 10% rating for secondary service connected FMS.
Secondary to PTSD.

Any physical or mental injury or stress can be the medical causation of Fibromyalgia.

Try taking some Armour Thyroid.
