    Can migraines lead to fibromyalgia?

    I have had migraines since I was a child.  They have tapered off as I have become older (now age 53) but I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 7 years ago.  I have constant pain that no type of medication seems to help (at least none that I wish to take!) The best way I can describe the pain would be that it is like an electrical current running thru my body, if one could imagine such a thing;    I Wondered if there are any statistics on migraine sufferers developing fibro later in life, possibly due to changes in the brain or nervous system related to migraines or how the brain perceives pain?
