No. From what I've read by googling "fibromyalgia muscle biospy" not much is gained from doing one. It certainly adds to the patients pain issues though. The primary test for FMS are the pressure points. Not all people with FMS have all 11 but they have other symptoms consistent with a diagnosis of FMS. Those symptoms may include sleeplessness, Raynouds, restless legs, IBS, osteoarthitis and GERD to name a few of the "perks." Many people with FMS can not tolerate a blood pressure cuff; it is extremely painful. I would hope that if your docotor wants to do a muscle biopsy he is considering something other than FMS as a possibility. If not, I would find someone else. Why subject yourself to a needless test that may cause you more pain? With FMS you have to be your own best advocate. Take care,
