From a quick search, I do see some sites that link the two.

Is this the paper you found?

I personally think that the bipolarity comes from the fact of your changes of humor because of the pain, it seems to be completly normal on some kind of people, not all of them so yes, that is my opinion though.

This is the first time I heard about this, but given fibro sufferers go through some much pain both physically and emotionally... I'd not be surprised if those emotional symptoms could be confused with bipolar disorder. I'd not be surprised one bit, because well, come on, most of us are an emotional wreck during our worst days, more if our bad days outnumber our good ones.
