A Fibromyalgia Symptom Checklist will help you determine if you have Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms can vary a lot depending on what is going on in your life. Increased Stress, Lack of Sleep, Weather Changes, and Increased Physical Activity can all cause you to feel worse.

To be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia you must have widespread pain above and below your waist, and on both sides of your body. These symptoms must last longer than three months for a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia to be made.

I had my patients fill out a Fibromyalgia Checklist to help make a determination as to whether or not they had Fibromyalgia.

A Fibromyalgia Symptom Checklist will usually have front and back diagrams of the human body, with dots where Fibromyalgia Tender Points are located. These tender points are found in nine pairs making a total of 18 possible tender points. A diagnosis of Fibromyalgia requires that you have pain in at least 11 of the 18 total points. The tender point locations are:

• Back of the head

• Between shoulder blades

• Top of shoulders

• Front sides of neck

• Upper chest

• Outer elbows

• Upper hips
