Patient discussion about lab

Q. Are there any lab tests used. Are there any lab tests that can be used to diagnose fibromyalgia disease?

A. Yes Liam, there are lots of lab tests to diagnose (or better understand fibromyalgia) but are only used in the research setting. Using them in the clinical setting doesn't help the patient because it doesn't help the problem of not having effective treatments. Many researchers are working on a simple lab test for the office.

Q. Can fibromyalgia be diagnosed through laboratory test? If not, what is the mode of diagnosis of the same?

A. Yes, that is true. All the testing is done to rule out other problems, then they look at the 18 trigger points and other symptoms suffers have such as chronic fatigue, headaches, pain that has lasted more than three months, irritable bowel, disturbed sleep, restless leg syndrome, etc. That's why it is so frustrating for those of us that suffer with fibromyalgai. You are run through blood test, mri's, cat scans, reffered to different doctors and you begin to feel like you are nuts and " it is in your head" then when you get the diagnosis most often you are greatly releived just to know what is wrong. I also suggest using a doctor that treats fibromyalgai if you are beginning this "journey" b/c once I did I found everything alot easier and was explained the test why's and so forth alot better. I felt I was being tested b/c they didn't know what was wrong and I had insurance. Once I got the this is to rule out this b/c it has these symptoms you are experiencing I coped
