Default I was diagnosed with fibro but I don't have tender points. Am confused.

As the title says. Neurologist diagnosed based on my other symptoms--dull aches, tiredness, brain fog, small fiber neuropathy, depression.

I am confused because I just read the Oxford Press Fibromyalgia Clinician's Guide from 2009 and it says that 100% of fibro sufferers have tender points. But on the Mayo Clinic fibro page, it says that doctors no longer use tender points as a criteria. It says that tender points can come and go so they are not a good criteria. This implies that they are still a main feature of the disease and that fibro patients will have them at some point, but maybe not all the time.

But what about if you never have tender points like me?
