I think that I have Fibromyalgia.

I have lots of symptoms of fibromyalgia, I went to my doctor and the only think that I did not have the tender points. I wasn't having a bad day the day I saw the doctor. But if I were to go in on a day where I hurt so bad I would have the tender points. I have days where my whole body hurts and I get so tired that I can't function. Could this be fibromyalgia?

nikkiw... you might have fibro but the symptoms also mimic other illnesses. Keep looking into it, keep telling your doctor and if he/she wont listen go to another doctor. Keep us posted! good luck.... Brandy

nikkiw, I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and also do not have the typical tender points. Two doctors have told me that the tender points are to aid in diagnosis and are usually a requirement for candidates for study in FMS clinical trials, but that you not all FMS sufferers have them. I do get occasional sore points, but usually never more than a couple of places at one time. I was diagnosed by other symptoms and the elimination of other similar illnesses through blood tests.
