Don't blame it all on fibro

It might look like fibro and feel like fibro - it may even be listed as a typical fibro symptom - but it might be something other than fibro. Maybe even something that can be treated and fixed. If you suddenly notice new symptoms that you haven't experienced before, report it to your doctor. It's all too easy to blame everything on fibro when it isn't.
