No you "catch" it and many people with it lives a normal life span
You don't catch Fibromyalgia or Lupus. I HAVE Fibromyalgia & it's from, stress, trauma, anxiety attacks & panic attacks but mostly trauma, if something bad happened in your life which did happen to me 16 years ago. My ex-husband kidnapped my daughter when she was 2 & all of that made me go into a really bad grand mal seizure. Fibromyalgia is NOT a disease, it's an illness.
