Do blood tests/immunisations hurt more with fibro??

I'm curious because I have so many of the somatic / cognitive symptoms, but pain is mild - mostly headaches, jaw pain and random pains in different parts of my body. I have been to so many doctors and had so many blood tests but I never thought of fibro until the jaw pain became more consistent. I feel like my body aches more than it should for age 39 but then I will be great for a while.
But to my question. I'm sure I am more aware of body sensations etc and get lots of minor pains, but I have no problem with needles. Does that rule out fibro? I also didn't take pain meds after my caesarean or my thyroid cancer surgery. Yesterday I had a fine needle biopsy with no meds and didn't find it painful. That doesn't sound like I am more sensitive to pain does it?
I'm so sick of feeling tired, vague feeling of being sick all the time and weird pains. I really want to figure out what is wrong and stop getting fobbed off by doctors!

Hi catnap,

I would guess the answer to your question would depend on the individual. I've been dx with fibro, but have never had more pain with shots or blood work. I would say that if you never had a problem in the past you probably won't have a problem with needles. I also could guess that if you did start having problems after a lifetime of not having problems from needles, that could be chalked up to one more thing fibro could actually cause you to suffer from. Best wishes and gentle hugs.
