Hi Lisa, welcome to the group!

I assume you're speaking or planning to speak with a doctor? I do know that the presence of an existing condition can complicate diagnosis for both chronic pain or fibromyalgia so I hope it's a smooth path for you and you have access to a good doctor.

You'll need to be looked at by a doctor either way, but you might like to also fill out the survey that's often used along with some sort of tender point analysis by the doctor. There's a quick fibromyalgia test on the front of the website and a chronic pain test as well.

Will you go forward with the anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery?
