    Some time back there was a list of symptoms from either a fellow fibromite or perhaps a Dr. Can someone once again
    throw something together for me? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!

    PLEASE KEEP BUMPING THIS - PIRT

    The diagnostic criteria can be found on the American Academy of Family Physicians website - I think this one is more clear than the College of Rheumatology

    www.familydoctor.org

    Click on the "Patients" tab and then F for Fibromyalgia.
