While the formal symptom surveys (see Table 1) and/or tenderpoint examination can be used to support the diagnosis, it is also reasonable to establish a working diagnosis of fibromyalgia purely on a combination of widespread pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbance, if there is no evidence of another specific diagnosis.

  • Finding the right doctor to help you in with your journey for living with Fibromyalgia is so essential. What kind of doctor do you see for your fibro?

  • Pain, every day I’m in pain and it really depresses me so much �� woke up in pain. Go to pain I’m in pain. It sucks woke up and can’t move my arms my back kills me

  • I’m sure I’ve got this but my doctor will not diagnose it, he doesn’t believe in it. What it feels like is similar to the pain you get the day after starting a heavy physical job. Stiff, fatigued but not disabled. The discomfort seems to be in every joint in the body, wrists elbows,neck, shoulders, hips and sides of the knees. I have to sleep in the day or I get a headache, and I get stomach trouble sometimes. It can go on for weeks, months and then there’s a period of relief and then it starts again.
    Doctor just says you’re 50 now it’s aches and pains, here’s some Codeine, goodbye.

  • I have had fibromyalgia for over 30 years,I unfortunately have all 18 pressure points in my body that is affected
    I would love just 5 minutes without pain �������� but I know that is impossible

  • Thanks Jessica for your videos, I’m 51 years old with fibromyalgia for more than 10 years, few moth I’m decide to stop all the horrible medication and use natural remedies,my family dr is not agree but I’m decided because all the horrible side effects I’m not resist any more, I’m start my journey, pray God to help me ����

  • Thank you for this video. I have had fibro for over 20 yrs now. The Cymbalta & Ambien have helped me greatly along with vitamin D in a large amoutn. 5000 units a day. My biggest problem now is no energy but you have given me a place to start working on that.

  • Thank you for sharing this video with us. In Ayurveda, the treatment of fibromyalgia is possible without any side effects. Planet Ayurveda offers Boswellia Curcumin Capsules and Aamvatantak Churna which are very useful in the treatment of fibromyalgia.

  • I’ve gone to er twice in 6 months with normal blood work and xrays and ct scans. I thought I was going crazy until I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia

  • These questions are really good but I can’t ask them to my GP. You are only allowed to talk about one symptom during the 10 minute consult. Years ago I went to see him with all my symptoms on paper and he was so nervous then. And the only thing that he told me was to watch my limits. The other doctor that works there does the same just looks in the computer and listens. The system here in the Netherlands is that you have to look for a house doctor, a GP, in the area where you live at. And when I type Fibromyalgia doctor on Internet, the rehabilitation centers open up. I have been to one last year with my daughter for an information talk and the woman was not that open-minded, kind of laid back. So all the information that my daughter and I got was hanging on poster boards on the wall. I don’t want to go there because it’s in the city and I depend on public transportation and walking a lot. You don’t heal there, so I have heard from an old friend whose partner also has Fibromyalgia and has gone there to learn more about it. You get to talk to a case-manager there, a psychologist and do exercises with a physic therapist. There is no research done there what the cause is. You learn there how to manage Fibromyalgia and live with it. As far as my GP, after talking to him and having the luxury that he looks at my face, then it’s time to go…so I only go to him when it’s time for my Diabetes Control. The osteopath and Chiropractor I can have a look and know that you have to pay yourself partially and that can really run up high bills.
