*~* Fibromaylgia Syndrome and Myofascial Pain Syndrome *~*
Fibro is not who I am DIAGNOSIS: In order to be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, you must fit the following requirements:

history of widespread chronic pain in all four quadrants of the body
at least 11 out of the 18 tender points

Another method used in helping to diagnose FMS, is the ruling out of other possible problems. I was checked for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Arthritis, Lupus, and various other diseases, etc.
