Some patients when diagnosed with fibromyalgia go into panic mode and become depressed. This stress is one of the dynamics that accelerates FM. Doctors should give pretest counselling especially to teenage patients who look at it like a death sentence. Post test counselling is also required. The patient should be made to understand that there are many other life threatening conditions and terminal illnesses but sufferers are coping and having plans for their lives for example diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure all of which might induce or be accompanied with FM.
