    How do we know what we have? The pain in itself makes us sick. Why wouldn't it? Aching, sore muscles, bones, joints, flu like symtoms, sinus, rashes, everything almost anyone can get, be in pain with, or miserable is part of it.

    FM has nothing for sure for a test. Trigger points and symtoms. Now, some articles say trigger points mean nothing.

    CFS. Is there a test? Or is it the same as FM, symtoms?

    There are other DD's that have the same or some of the same symtoms. MPS, RA, Osteoarthritis, and others.

    If the doctors don't know and the researchers don't know, how is anyone going to find help for us?

    Thanks everyone.

    I honestly don't know the name of them. But I do know there were several articles that said trigger points didn't necessarily mean FM. That many patients have overall body pain and there whole body was tender. (Myself included)

    I think one of them was a search on MSP. (Myoplasia..SP??)

    I have search so many sights lately that I try to write them down if I think I've really found something.

    Sorry, if I find it again, I will let you know.
