My friend who was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia is not satisfied with the result of the test. He doubts the same. He asked my help to find how is Fibromyalgia Diagnosed? So now I pass this question to you.

A. It is his right to doubt or believe but research shows that people with ‘fibromyalgia’ pertaining to see many doctors before receiving the diagnosis. One reason for this may be that pain & fatigue, the main symptoms of fibromyalgia, overlap with many other conditions. Therefore, doctors have to rule out other potential causes of these symptoms before making a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

There is no generally accepted objective test for fibromyalgia. Some doctors unfortunately may conclude a patient’s pain is not real or they may tell the patient there is little they can do.
