Hi Denys

Unfortuantely no, we all wish there was as it would be something definitive to show the non-believers. Diagnosis can take a long while because Fibro is really a rule out condition so all the testing physical and biological are used to rule out other conditions which have similar symptoms and symptom overlap before the diagnosis is confirmed, the only physical test used is the tender point, generally carried out by a rhuematologist.

Some docs are confident to diagnose without referral to anyone else and without the tender point test and some carry out the test them selves really all depends on you doc :dunno: :fingerscrossed you get some answers soon as this tends to help things move on a little

:welcome: to the forum smarthope :wave:

A few of your problems are symptoms of fibro but we are suffer differently so its hard to say if they are all down to fibro, have you mentioned all the symptoms to your GP?

It take take a while to be dx with fibro, its always last on the list as it does not show up in any tests so everything else has to be ruled out first.

Hoe you get some answers soon. :goodluck1:
