Fibromyalgia S/S: Fibromyalgia or tenderness of fibrous tissue is a very difficult diagnosis to establish. I believe that the difficulty in diagnosis, the widespread symptoms and failure at consistent therapeutic regimens make physicians frustrated. Rheumatologist usually treat fibromyalgia. My advice is to another opinion from another doctor.
