Do I have fibromyalgia?
Do I have chronic fatigue syndrome?
These are tough questions which are probably filled with anxiety and worry. In the past, a large number of fibromyalgia sufferers had to wait for years to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
Doctors just did not know what to make of the syndrome, and so they failed to make the appropriate fibromyalgia diagnosis, leaving sufferers to fend for themselves.
Thankfully fibromyalgia research has caught up and given us some clues into the early signs of fibromyalgia, although a cause still escapes them.
Besides severe fatigue, some of the early signs of fibromyalgia are:
Fibromyalgia trigger points or tender points.
These are multiple pain points described as feeling like "charlie horses" on and around your body. They are located at 18 different locations, both above and below your waist.
Use the Fibromyalgia Trigger Point Diagram below to match your pain points.
On a side note, Trigger point massage therapy has been shown to help reduce the pain associated with fibromyalgia trigger points.
