What Labs Do Doctors Order to Test for Fibromyalgia?

Fibro Daily April 1, 2013

The answer is zero. They order zero lab tests for Fibromyalgia because no lab tests for Fibromyalgia exist.

What doctors do order are tests that eliminate other issues which may cause some of the problems you are experiencing. Some of those tests check for:

  • anemia
  • cholesterol levels
  • kidney and liver function
  • under active and overactive thyroid
  • and more.

A Fibromyalgia diagnosis is given only after an extensive elimination and case history analysis which includes a pain and fatigue assessment.

It take the average Fibro patient about five years to get the proper diagnosis.
