MINI BLOG – Diagnosing Fibromyalgia

I was comissioned recently to run a CPD session on Fibromyalgia. Part of it involved discussing how Fibromyalgia is diagnosed and I have decided to share the slides from that component of the talk. Fibromyalgia continues to be poorly understood and while I don’t consider myself an expert by any means it certainly is something I have had a chunk of exposure to.

PLEASE REMEMBER – THIS BLOG IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR CLINICAL REASONING, IF YOU ARE UNSURE GET ADVICE

I hope that these are helpful to many clinicians and maybe even some patients who wish for more information on how their diagnosis has been arrived at.
