Fibromyalgia without Pain?

by Terry
(South Carolina)

Can a person have fibromyalgia syndrome without the pain? My neurologist diagnosed me with fibromyalgia several years ago after checking my trigger points. When I told her I didn't have the chronic flu-like pain that my friends who have fibromyalgia complain of, she said the muscles were all tight at the trigger points just like those people who have fibromyalgia. I do have most of the other symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, migraines, etc.; however, I realize that these symptoms also overlap with other disorders/syndromes.

The very definition requires pain
by: Kerri Knox, Registered Nurse

The very definition of Fibromyalgia requires pain in order to define it. Myalgia means muscle pain. Diagnosing you with Fibromyalgia without pain would be sort of like saying that you have a headache without pain. It's a bit ridiculous.

Sounds more like you just have a severe case of magnesium deficiency if you just have tight muscles. Please see my page on Fibromyalgia and Magnesium.
