The first diagnosis of Fibro my daughter was given was after two years of seeing medics. The doctor who diagnosed it went on symptoms and diagnosed her with CFS/FM. Many years later (and in a different country) she saw a rheumatologist who told her she has Fibro after a medical examination. Numerous blood tests and physical exams ruled out other illnesses. It's been a long journey (17 years ) with no pain relief from numerous meds/alternative therapies.

There is an expensive test that I am not sure most insurance pays for just yet. Otherwise the doctors eliminate other diagnoses/reasons for pain to come to a fibromyalgia diagnosis.

@A MyFibroTeam Member is a test called ANA that they do now that will show autoimmune disease. Then the doctor has to figure out which of the autoimmune disease you have. Such as Fibromyalgia,Lupus, MS,Lyme disease. It's worth finding out.
