In brief: 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.
