It used to be diagnosed using fibromyalgia trigger points in the body defined by the American College of Rheumatology. In 2010, they developed a new fibromyalgia diagnosis which includes where the pain is and what type of problems you have. Fibromyalgia symptoms are more common in women.

There are medications which have been approved for fibromyalgia treatment. To be approved, these medications have to go through fibromyalgia clinical trials. These medications can be obtained through fibromyalgia clinics, such as The Helm Center. The medications include Lyrica, Cymbalta and Sevilla.
