In brief: Fibromyalgia impact

Because impact of fibromyalgia symptoms is the best measure of disease, 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.

In brief: Tis good idea

? if it is good to see a Dr. if one has fibromyalgia (FM) symptoms.
The symptoms of FM are often nonspecific & manifested by many other disorders. Only doctors are licensed to use tests, physical exams & imaging studies to diagnose medical disorders. Self-diagnosis is risky business and, as the saying goes, "he who is his own doctor has a fool for a doctor".
