Abstract/Notes Fibromyalgia (FM) is a diagnosis of exclusion used to describe patients with a cluster of symptoms that are not attributed to a recognized disease process. The hallmark symptom of FM is chronic widespread pain which is bilateral, above and below the waist, and involving the axial skeleton and/or torso. The symptom cluster also includes unrefreshing sleep, fatigue, cognitive difficulties, and a number of somatic complaints. Unfortunately, FM is often misdiagnosed because these symptoms may also be found associated with latent pathology or disease, metabolic/functional disorders, or chronic musculoskeletal disorders. All clinicians who treat chronic pain patients should learn how to differentiate between FM and other causes of widespread pain and fatigue.
