Differance between Fibro & Poly Myalgia
3 Replies
Mrs Zozzer - February 6

I went to see my GP on Friday and he is now testing me for Polymyalgia, is Polymyalgia any differant to Fibromyalgia?

Polymyalgia Rheumatica is an inflammatory disorder while Fibromyalgia is not. You can read more about Polymalgia under "Associated Conditions" in the blue boxes on the lefthand side of this page. Take care.

I was tested for polymyalgia as well, but after blood tests and a bone scan, no inflammation was found, so it was dropped. The rheumy I was seeing didn't even mention FMS so I went back to my GP and told him I wanted a 2nd opinion. I think it's just another item on the list of "things to rule out" when you're on the road to FMS diagnosis.

I go back to see my GP hopefully tommorow but when I rang about my blood tests all they said was "No Action Required" so like you said seedbeads its just another thing that has been tried. I'm still taking the Tramadol 100mg twice daily but they dont seem to be doing anything. Dont think work is helping as I dont get enough time to relax before the weekend is over and it all starts over again, anyway going to see what he says.
