Hi folks...was diagnosed with fibro and had all the awful symptoms for years and years. A routine blood test showed a high calcium level which is caused by hyperparathyroidism...ususally a benign adenoma of the parathyroid glands. Checked into this....had the new outpatient mininmally invasive minisurgery to remove the adenoma and am completely cured. Many things may cause fibro symptoms, but if you have it at least get your blood calcium levels checked to rule it out. I am beginnning to suspect it is one of the big causes behind this disease. The symptoms are almost identical. Check out high calcium, symptoms and diagnosis at parathyroid.com. May you be as lucky as I was!
