How does diagnosis for Fibromyalgia work?

will you find out the same day you discuss it with your doctor of your symptoms? or will they do bloodwork to rule out other things and then verify that it must be Firbromyalgia?

    they shoudl NOT diagnose you the 1st day. They need to rule out otehr conditions with blood work and imaging studies (MRI,xray)…they shoudl also consider doing a spinal test for Multiple sceloris..

    they should take a full history–including lifestyle and home enviroenment–to see if your pain and fatigue is due to that..

    that is what a good doc should due..

    many docs use th term fibro as a general term for pain and fatigue–and hand it out like cany and don't botehr actaully ivestigating
