Hi Allan and welcome to the forum. FM is classed as pain in all 4 quadrants of the body... top/bottom/left/right.

If you don't have that then it's unlikely you will get a dx. However when you first start getting FM it often starts in one place then spreads so I'm not saying people don't have it, just that you won't be able to get a dx.

Anyway, stick with us and we'll help all we can. I too have OA as well as FM... not nice. :(
