    Hello everyone!
    Am 57 yrs. old..was DX'd in 1988 with FMS..then again this past 2 months..Reumy did not do any tests of any kind except the tender & trigger points..I had all of them...started giving me strong pain meds/muscle relax's..and sleeping pill...was wondering if anyone else has had a FM DX like this...I have all over pain 24/7..but have had a lot of surgeries over the years..3 carpal tunnel on rt. hand/ neck surgery/ forearm& elbow/ left foot..so guess I am little undecided about this DX...fam. member is RN..doesnt bel. Dr. can give this DX without ruling out other poss. DX...have the CF also..all that pertains to FM...Don't know what to think..Any input would be appr..Sorry this is so long...Have a nice day..... Susan
