Hello, I have a question for those of you with more knowledge about fibromyalgia: Could I have fibromyalgia if I don't feel pain when I press on the designated tender points? Here is my situation: I have been trying to clarify my diagonsis for years now, and have thought myself that it is likely CFIDS. My neurologist said yesterday that the results of my recent sleep study shows alpha delta sleep, which he said is consistent with fibromyalgia. While I am open to the idea of other diagnoses, I don't think I have the tender point pain that is required for the diagnosis. I don't have pain when I press on the designated points. What I do have is all over pain--the type you would have if you had the flu or were hungover. This pain is worse when I am more fatigued. I have a lot of symptoms but the most problematic are fatigue, unrefreshing sleep, cognative impairment, orthostatic hypotension, and anxiety. The doctor is considering prescribing xyrem or trazadone for sleep, and possibly doing a daytime sleep study. He confesses this is not his area of expertise, and wants to consult with a colleague.
