I have just been diagnosed with FM and cfs. I've been feeling terrible for almost three years now and my doctor did not think it was cfs when I mentioned it. He just keeps sending me for more tests and to different doctors. Finally, through research, I found a doctor in the area on the good doctor's list. I just went to her on Monday and she diagnosed fm and cfs. She diagnosed fm because I had pain in tender points but I have not been experiencing any kind of severe pain - just achiness and many symtoms of cfs. My question is about this diagnosis. Is it possible to have fm without feeling pain all of the time? Please reply. I don't know anything about this doctor but all of you on this board are very knowledgeable on this subject.
