They diagnos by how many trigger points they touch that you respond too. Most are down your spine and across the hips. can cause fatigue pain and burning and complete disibility in some.
There are meds now that help to control the nerve pain associated with this such as gabapetin.

I have had fibromyalgia since 1990. It is a form of arthritis that affects the muscle, tendons and ligaments. It has certain trigger points that are very tender to touch. My whole body hurts all the time if I touch it. I hope this helps.

Try looking here @A MySpondylitisTeam Member https://www.healthline.com/health/fibromyalgia/....

There are a miriad of effects Fibro can have and not everyone gets the exact same. We both have fibro here for many years but the best advice is, once you do have a firm diagnosis from a Rheumatologist do not let any other medics allow the fibro diagnosis to leave unchecked, ignored or masked, any other problems and symptoms as they will try fob everything off on to it. x x

Hi Karen and Judy,
My husband has Fibromyalgia, ulcerative colitis as well as Diabetes, HB, High Cholesterol and back issues.
He’s a lot like Judy but doesn’t seem to have the sensitive skin as bad as Judy.
No one else in his family has Fibromyalgia that we know of and he doesn’t get migraines.
He does spend a lot of time in bed! Our day together usually doesn’t start till 2pm or after.
I have a friend that I used to bead with that has a lot of problems with the skin sensitivity!!
He was on Remicade Infusions for a few years then switched to Humira shots at home every 2 weeks..
He has good times and bad.
Like all of us.
I hope you are getting some relief from all of it!
