A pressure point check helps diagnose Fibro. Also, it is found that over 90% of Fibromyalgiacs have a sleep disorder in which they do not reach REM sleep. So, I'd recommend a sleep study and a good Rheumatologist. When you find a Rheumatologist be sure to carry a fully documented list of all symptoms. Include how long you've suffered with these symptoms and what time of day your pain is most prevalent. Good luck!
