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.
