Fibromyalgia?: It is like a syndrome, means that there should be some sign and symptoms together to be calling it fibromyalgia, 1- 13 trigger points on neck, shoulders, elbows, lower back and knees. 2- insomnia, and fragmented sleep. 3- depression. You need to see your doctor or a rheumatologist. By the way i would not cal sed rate of 15 as being elevated.
