@Shy1shy1 From everything I have read, it seems very plausible that I could have fibro. Everything else has been ruled out. The last rheumatologist I went to was 6 years ago and she had the personality of a wet mop. She used the tender point method to determine that I did NOT have fibro, but I think that's BS. Supposedly, they don't even use this method anymore. My appt. with her is in a month and I hope she does not use that method any longer because I've read some people don't even have the tender points. I also have tender places on my elbow, knees, hip and lower back that when you press on them they are sore like a bruise. I have not found anything for the fatigue yet. Since I suffer from depression also, it makes everything twice as bad and is hard to get out of bed. I think CFS is very similar to fibro, but I haven't been diagnosed with either. I usually will get tired of going to dr's and give it a few years rest without pursuing a diagnosis, but eventually when it's bothering me really bad, I will pursue it again and never get a diagnosis. It's so frustrating to know something is wrong and no one can tell you why.
