Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed by history and physical examination with the existence of specific tender points in the body. It is a big mimicker and its symptoms can resemble other pain diseases including neck and low back disc disease. However, it is still a diagnosis of exclusion and if something else is suspected, it should be ruled out before we blame the symptoms on fibromyalgia.

Neck Pain: This pain may be due to improper positions, maneuvers, or postures that you do on a daily basis. For example, if you work a certain job that requires you to type on the computer, hold the phone, or position yourself in a particular way for extended periods of time, then a change in life style could help. Otherwise, you need to follow up with a physician and may be obtain some radiologic tests.
