  • I have an aunt, who most certainly does have this condition, and yes, it is mostly a condition arrived at by eliiminating a bunch of other illness. The trigger points are a way to figure out if it MAY be the issue. NONE of us would want to be diagnosed with anything that is a quazy quack illness, however, Having watched my aunt for almost 40 years and her path being close to my own unique issues, I would have to say that this is a real illness and therefore needs to be acknowledged and treated as such.

    None of us wish we wanted to have this or anyother illness, but at least if I have a diagnosis, then at least I can begin to LIVE with it.

    Presently, I have most of the trigger points and other symptoms of this illness, and I am on the meds for it, to see if it will be affected, so in a round about way, I may have this diagnosis, after more than 20+ years of trying to figure out what this is. I think the Dr's have a hard time trying to figure out what we might actually have, because if the changing dynamics of the symptoms.

    Peace - have a good weekend.
