Have you been diagnosed with fibromyalgia or think you may have it. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, it can take up to 4 years to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Why does it take so long? The reason is because fibromyalgia is sort of a diagnosis you get if you fit the description and symptoms and nothing else can be found as the cause. Fibromyalgia is somewhat of a mystery and is not well understood. In the past it was looked upon as mostly a psychological condition, but more resent research has shown a possible link to chemical imbalances within the brain, resulting in a lower pain tolerance.
