should I ask the dr?

Hi, My sister has fibromyalgia. I know she has the acheness and her tattoos she has had for 20 years have swelled up like they are new. She has other symptoms but anyway I was just looking at symtoms beause I was interested in it and I noticed some of the things I go through are on the list here are some of the things:

1. migraines
2. IBS
3. fatigue I could sleep 24/7 if I was able
4. just over all feeling of illness like I have the flu
5. back pain upper

I don't want to suffer with these symptoms anymore if there is other treatment that can help. I also know if I walk into the docs office and say hey I have fibro he might say hey c ya later. I don't want fibro If I go in to get tested do they do allergy test? I am hoping I have an allergy but thats would be the easy way.

I have always had the fatige since I was a kid and head ache since I was a teen but the migraines and ibs started after I had my first kid at 19.

Re: should I ask the dr?

There isn't a test for Fibro... It's a process of testing for everything else in the world to make sure that you don't have something else. There are certain things that you have to have in order to be DX'ed with fibro. You are right... You DON'T want fibro, and I hope that you don't have it. If you are going to a Dr. I suggest that you make a list of symptoms and bring it with you. I hope that you find out....
