Yes it can, as the stomach is a muscle, fibromyalgia is a deterioration of muscles.  My friend tries to walk as much as possible to make her muscles stronger, and has eliminated a lot of different food from her diet that caused stomach upset

There are many health problems that tend to accompany Fibromyalgia.  One of them is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  The symptoms of this can fluctuate from constipation to diarrhea, and can also include bloating and stomach pains.  Even if this is part of your Fibromyalgia, you need to see a Gastroenterologist to have this seen about.  You can change your diet to help relieve some of the symptoms. There are also medications now that can help the symptoms of IBS.  One example is Amitiza which is for IBS-C (CONSTIPATION).  If you are in pain, you can get some relief.  I have been there.  God Bless!
