    NOW THAT YOU ARE SIGNED IN, DID YOU SIGN UP FOR THE INFORMATION GUIDE ON FIBRO AND CPS? THE LAST ONE I GOT WAS THE END OF FEB. VERY HELPFUL INFORMATION AND ITS FREE.
    THE FIRST THING THAT TOLD MY DAUGHTER ABOUT HAVING IT WAS FROM HER BLOOD WORK. YOU NEED TO BE TESTED FOR YOUR "ANA" HERS WAS 641. THAT SHOWS RM, LUPUS OR FIBRO. THEY ELIMINATED RM, THEN LUPUS THEN DR. DID THE TENDER POINT TEST. 10 PRESSURE POINTS ON YOUR BACK SIDE AND 8 POINTS IN FRONT. IF THEY HURT WHEN TOUCHED ITS FIBRO NOT CPS. LOOK FOR IT IN THE LIBRARY OR INFO CENTER. KEEP READING OLD POST AND YOU WILL GET VREY EDUCATED ON THIS WEBSITE, EVERYONE IS VERY HELPFUL.
    GOOD LUCK
