Fibromyalgia Pain Trigger Points
Fibromyalgia is diagnosed when pain is confirmed in at least eleven of the eighteen trigger points shown in the above photo. I test positive for pain in all of the identified points (and the ankles too).
Amazing to think that so much pain can emanate from the hands, but if true, it surely explains a lot about the difficulty I've had with my hands over the years. And it just might explain the more recent phenomenon of my "losing another finger" with each fibro flare-up.
Now that they've finally unlocked the mystery of fibro, no telling how much longer we'll have to wait for the "cure" to come.
