    I am new to fibro but I just wanted to see if anyone else experiences this or if it is just a coincidence. Yesterday (as some of you may have read) I went to Dr. Pellegrino for the first time. This was the first time I'd ever had the tender point check done. Currently, my hips and inner knees are what is bothering me. However, after having the exam yesterday, the two spots on either side of my lower head/upper neck are killing me! They hurt just when my hair brushes against them and I can't even think about touching them. I also have a headache.

    Do you think this was from the exam or is it just a coincendence that these points are flaring up? I honestly don't know if they've EVER hurt this bad??? :(
