  • There is no "set" diagnosis test. Start recording your symptoms, and talk with your MD. He'll run some tests to rule out other issues.

  • The only way to know is to go to the Dr.

  • I would go to your moms doctor if you think you have fibromyalgia, because it has only been a medical term for alittle over 10 years and alot of Doctors think patients that claim they have it are drug seekers, and not a real disease or disorder. Just be careful....

    NO I AM NOT SAYING IT IS NOT REAL..

  • Go to your Doc and get tested for it. There's a 50/50 chance, that you have it or not. So start to make a diary about your symptoms, how long they are, how much they occur, under which circumstances and how bad the pain is on a scale from 1 to 10 (one the lowest, 10 the worst). My BFF has it and she's always hurt, so I know a bit about it and how she got diagnosed.

    @midnighmoma:
    This is for real, you should see my BFF if she has an attack, she can't really move for hours, even with meds!
