A guideline for diagnosis has been produced by the American College of Rheumatology that requires an examination of a three-month record of a patient experiencing Fibromyalgia symptoms. In addition to this, the patient must be able to pinpoint at least eleven body parts that are significantly painful or tender. If a patient does not meet these requirements, the physician may test and diagnose a related condition known as Myofascial Pain Syndrome. The symptoms of this condition are similar to Fibromyalgia yet different treatments may be required.
