In brief: Diagnosis ??

Fibromyalgia is a diagnosis of exclusion.
Other things need to be considered and ruled out. Work with a pain or rehabiltation specialist. A rheumatologist may need to see you and run some tests.

To be diagnosed you must have: history of widespread pain has been present for at least three months, pain in 11 of 18 tender point sites on digital palpation morning stiffness does not rule it in or out. See your pcp. Check out: http://www.Nfra.Net/diagnost.Htm.
