Any new tests for fibromyalgia?

I have been diagnosed by two rheumatologist over a course of ten years, but still have questions with no type of testing but symptoms and tender points. I have a high RA factor with no active rheumatoid arthritis and wondering if the two are linked.

    I was diagnosed with Fibro over 20 yrs. ago by the same, trigger points and symptoms. Now, it is an 18 point test but mostly based on symptoms. There are a lot of side effects that go hand in hand with the symptoms.
    Symptoms of Fibro can be confused with those of arthritis and it is seen as a rheumatic condition.  But there is a lot of research going on that is pointing it to autoimmune and nerve damage.
    I truly believe they had no where else to send Fibro patients to because no one understood it. So rheumatologist got them.

  • I have to agree with your statement! I said two rheumy's had diagnosed me, but had forgotten over so many years the 3rd one told me in 2010 they just didn't know. My muscles or tendons stay so sore all over my body I could pass any place I'm tested. ;)
