In brief: Depends on impact
Because impact of fibromyalgia symptoms is the best measure of disease severity, dr. Robert bennett published the fibromyalgia impact questionnaire (fiqr) that makes it easy for patients to find out.
There is "fibromyalgia" app that makes using and scoring fiqr easy. Based on your fiqr score, you will know how your symptoms compare to other patients. Once you know, you can decide to get help.
