In my experience calling it fibromyalgia isn't much better than telling you it is all in your head. Once given this diagnosis the docs stop trying to find out why a person is sick and in pain....and they could miss something life threatening.....like my myopathy. Also, after getting that diagnosis my doctor told me he has a picture of people with fibromyalgia.....overweight complainers who say nothing helps them. I told him that maybe it is because nothing does help them. Because they don't need their SYMPTOMS treated, they need the real medical condition treated. He agreed and thus my REAL diagnosis! Leslie
