I have been to lots of doctors yes I have Hashimotos thyiroiditos
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is often misdiagnosed as depression, cyclothymia, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia

their ia test for fibromyalgia mine was done by a top pain doctor at Guys& St thomas hospital londontrigger points test found pain in 3 quadrants posibly 4 by putting pressure on all four quadrants of the body.very painfull in places thats how doctors makea diagnosis of fibromyalgia.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is often misdiagnosed as … fibromyalgia
I don't believe there is any other ailment that results in the telltale painful trigger points of a person with fibromyalgia.
When hypothyroidism decreases energy metabolism, trigger points often form in many muscles and refer pain.
hypothyroidism is one of the major risk factor of formation of trigger points it can generate trigger points any where in the body
... seems that there are 18 tender points specifically related to fibromyalgia. Do you know if these 18 specific points may also be related to other conditions, or do they remain specific to FM?
My Pain is here and now and still cant understand what is causing itany ideas, pain in legs arms back neck head & bad chronic fatigue.confusion
In fact, there are no blood tests or x-rays which reliably diagnose fibromyalgia ... As many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia are similar to those experienced by lupus patients, there is a natural concern that the symptoms of a fibromyalgia flare could be the underlying lupus picking up steam. Ultimately, the treating physician has to make a call on these increased symptoms. In general, lupus patients who are undergoing a flare have other findings; such as evidence of true arthritis (usually with joint swelling), skin rashes, sores in their mouth, fever, hair fall or evidence of specific organ disease such as pleurisy or microscopic amounts of blood and protein in the urine. Furthermore, in active lupus, blood tests such as the sedimentation rate often become elevated, the white count (particularly the lymphocyte subset) becomes depressed and there is often an increase in the level of anti-DNA antibodies. None of these findings are a feature of fibromyalgia -- thus the distinction between a flare of fibromyalgia and a flare of lupus should not be too difficult if the problem is approached systematically.
