    My rheumatologist isn't sure whether or not I have FM because I didn't respond when he tested my tender points. I didn't respond because I was trying to talk... oh well.
    It seems that anywhere I put pressure on any muscle it hurts. I've had this for so many years I began to think of it as normal.
    I also have muscles that are like they are contracted all of the time. I have one in my right forearm, left thigh and left pectoral. The muscles, or part of them, are as hard as rocks in a resting position.
    Does this sound like an FM symptom?

    Poor thing.
    Get thee to a hot tub!
    Seriously, try massage and baths with epsom salts.

    I'm CFS not Fibro but the above worked for me.
    Good luck dear.

    I have these knotted musles on the tops of my thighs - they are rock hard
