    I have osteoarthritis. Several years ago a rheumy thought I had fibromyalgia. Next dr said no, just osteoarthritis. My new rheumy is saying diffuse myofascial pain syndrome. I have tender points in various muscles/soft tissue. Is myofascial pain more like arthritis or fibromyalgia??? I attended a support group several years ago but stopped going since the dr. said it wasn't, just osteoarthritis. Confusing.
