New Diagnostic Criteria 2016

As of 2016, new criteria for the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia were determined. The previous test was a trigger point test of 11-18 points reacting gave a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia when not other condition explains it. This is no longer considered a valid marker for Fibro though many doctors still use this outdated model.

According to this, my WPI is 10 & my SSS is 8. That’s one criteria down. Symptoms have been around for decades. Dr Bested did a full panel of tests, needing 2 separate visits cuz of how much blood they required for the tests. All it found was that my vitamin D was a little low, but normal and vitamin B12 was lower than normal – but I knew that already.

So by this criteria, guess what!?!? I have Fibromyalgia!! Surprise!!
