I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and explained to the Consultants that I did not have tender points. However, after the diagnosis I had painful tender points in my elbow and also did not realize that I had tender points on base of skull and tenderness on lower back (hips in pain). I read that you need at least 11 of the tender points to be diagnosed. Thank you.
