Does Anyone Know The University Of Ohio Is Developing A Test For Fibromyalgia

Two professors using vibrational spectroscopy are able to determine fibromyalgia, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis with 100% accuracy.

The doctors explained that the test may even determine the severity of the fibromyalgia per patient (amazing!!) so that will mean a faster and more effective treatment.

This could make a big difference in the way we are treated once it gets to be the method for diagnosing fibro. Always the stigma of fibro has been that there was no definitive test to prove or disprove that we have it. What a blessing it will be if this works out as they think it will.

I am thrilled to hear this. In addition to helping so many I hope all those practitioners who were so dismissive and condescending to us will feel ashamed of themselves...
