    Go back to your doctor and say that you want a full examination and a diagnosis. You also need to have 14(I think) trigger points so ask your doctor to test you for those.

    You need to ask your doctor for a diagnosis, or at least a plan on how to eliminate all other immune issues. My diagnosis took 4 years to get to the elimination of everything else. As there are no blood test for it, they not only use trigger points, they use the fact that everything else has been tested for and came back negative. Good Luck and keep us posted on the board. Also remember you are allowed a second opinion.
