I definitely have fibro. I have been diagnosed by 3 Rhuematologists. My current dr keeps saying I have additional symptoms that seems to be rhuematological such as those for RA or some for Lupus. He tests and tests (blood workup) and it comes back 'normal'. From my own research I do not believe it is Lupus but what else does Fibro get diagnosed for and what tests distinguish the difference? I think there is something more than Fibro but I do not know what. I do have symptoms that fit RA but the blood work keeps coming back negative. COuld there be multiple false negatives? any info is appreciated.
