Are Fibromyalgia and Trigeminal Neuralgia related?

  I posted this question on the Trigeminal Neuralgiia  [Facebook group] - "Does anyone here have Fibromyalgia?"

 Everyone there had Trigeminal Neuralgia of course.... and in less than one day 103 replies said "Yes, I have both"

  I don't know why, but to see that long list of Yesses made me quite emotional  I guess it is something to learn that I was not the only one [that is a very lonely feeling, and it means nobody will believe me ["oh right, you are so special because you are the ONLY one"] [etc].

 

And WHY, WHAT, and HOW are they related?

- they are both painful, and they are both "of unknown etiology", but the question here is "are they of similar etiology?"

    Or in real words -  are they CAUSED by the same thing? 

  Is there an infection of the large nerves, and when it is the Trigeminal nerve, we call it Trigeminal Neuralgia.?

  Or is it a brain problem where pain is elicited "for no good reason" ["iseless pain" ]?

   I believe that they are both neurological, meaning only that there is a problem "of the nerves", but as for the rest of it, I have to leave to the researchers

. My work here is done, I  linked tthe two dreadful conditions, albeit  not a clinical or scientificconnection, 103 people with both [and nobody said no, not both].
