I am relatively new to this site and will try to keep this short!
I have been suffering for the past five years and this last year has been worse. I have TMD to start with and am seeing a specialist neuromuscular dentist about that in May. I also have pain and aching in my neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, with aching and a weak feeling in my arms and legs, plus headaches sometimes. I also have many of those painful trigger points.
It has taken me an age to get through to my doctors...but eventually they have agreed to send me to a Rheumatologist! I don't know that I have fibromyalgia, but it sure feels like it, and reading posts on here, I can equate with most of them.
So my question is, is there a set of symptoms that they look for when diagnosing? As my doctor said it's hard to diagnose.
