New Diagnostic Criteria for Fibromyalgia

New Diagnostic Criteria for Fibromyalgia. Please take the time to read this interesting article if you have FMS!

For years doctors have used “tender points” as a tool to diagnose fibromyalgia and those tender points have been considered controversial.

Personally I’ve always thought FMS was so much more than those tender points. For me it’s  been the muscle weakness, the debilitating fatigue, loss of sleep, dizziness, lack of energy, extreme pain and overall malaise. Hopefully these means progress in helping FMS patients!

It’s about time, right?!
