While doing my usual web search for any new info on FMS, I ran across a couple articles stating that most people with FMS register severe pain when given a standard blood pressure test. The study further stated that only 20% of non-FMS patients tested had pain associated with the bp test. There is hope amongst FMS researcher that this may lead to more definitive testing. Personally, since the onset of FMS nearly 2 years ago, having my blood pressure taken is excruciatingly painful. Would love to know what others think of this development and what your personal experience with bp tests has been.
