I was told back in 1999 by an endo that I had Fibro when I went to him for thyroid HELP. I have been going to docs for about 10 yrs for depression which I believe was thyroid all along. This was all after menopause in my 50's.

No labs could help me with thyroid and docs kept giving me A/D drugs and then the one endo said Fibro. I have had a tough time believing this fibro stuff as it's so much that the docs can't help. WE have to be our own docs on this one I believe.

Turns out it was thyroid that needed help and a D.O. I was seeing for years for my back issues put me on Armour, no labs, nadda, and depresion lifted in 4 days.

I've lost a lot of trust and faith in docs except for Dr Google and Fibro/CFS support groups and forums. To this day I don't know about that Fibro dx. This all started in my 50's and I'm 81. I know I deal with bodywide Osteoarthritis.
