    Does anyone know what Polyarthralgias or Polymyalgias are? I was diagnosed with these in addition to the Fibromyalgia. All I can find out about them is that they mean "pain in the joint".

    If anyone could offer better definitions I would appreciate it. Thanks

    Many people first develope polymyalgia and polyarthritis and then technically it becomes fibromyalgia as it continues to develop in your body, otherwise it would be that your polymyalgia would get better and go away. My mom started with polymyalgia and polyarthritis that eventually instead of getting better progressed in to FM. My gramma has been diagnosed with polymyalgia and continues to be treated for it without a FM diagnosis but she won't go see a specialist so my bet is after 10 years now she is technically a FM patient. I had RSD as a child which is know for being linked to patients who Fibromyalgia. Does anyone have experience with RND/RSD?
