Re: Anyone out there experience stabbing groin pain??
Although I don't get the stabbing groin pain, I wanted to answer your question about the positive diagnosis of FM and the negative ones.
I'd go with the positive, just because so many doctors are not all that well educated on FM and don't want to admit it. If you were told you have it---you have it.
Although a lot of our symptoms can cross or be caused by other disorders, it just compounds the problems we have with FM.
Like you I have disc trouble. My FM doc always writes on the billing sheet for the insurance: FM and also 'cervical disc disease symdrome'. So--I know it's not related to the FM, but it sure aggravates it.
