Please tell me blood tests for fibromyalgia?

None. Fibromyalgia is a 'diagnosis of exclusion' which means that the blood tests done during the work up of fibromyalgia are to rule out other possible diagnoses, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, vitamin deficiency, & others. There is no test for fibromyalgia other than a physician taking your history & completing a thorough physical to determine if you meet the diagnostic criteria.

Hair loss past 4 months. Have fibromyalgia but told not cause. Other blood tests ok. At this point, can taking a multi vitamin help?

Only if deficient. Taking a once-a-day multivitamin is fine to do. However, most people in the U.S. do not have specific vitamin deficiencies as a cause of hair loss. Therefore, taking a multivitamin is unlikely to alter the course of the hair loss. That means the hair loss may get better or get worse while taking the multivitamin, because the hair loss is most likely not related to the multivitamin. Read more...
