You need to have other possible causes of your symptoms ruled out or isolated before a definite diagnosis of Fibro is possible.

Here is information on the diagnosis of Fibro:


Hi, I am also waiting to see a rheumatologist after all my blood tests have come back normal. Most of my major pain is in my back, legs and my hands. I dont have a very sympathetic gp so am thinking of finding another surgery. My gp stopped my anti depressants (citralopam) she never even weened me off them grrr. I also take amitryptaline 50mg at night, but they are supposed to be to prevent my migraines and help with joint pain. Doctor has stopped me from taking co codamol 30mg as i am taking tramadol. but alone they dont work. I went to the peterborough hydrotherapy pool yesterday which was great. It helps short term but was amazing at the time. I do hope you get help soon. Everybody on this site are amazing people and it has been a great source of help for me as i dont have any friends or family where i live. good luck. xx


thanx guys
