If you suspect that you may have fibromyalgia, see a doctor soon. The symptoms of fibromyalgia can mimic those of other medical conditions, so getting an accurate diagnosis -- as well as early treatment -- is important. Your doctor will ask about your medical history and give you a thorough physical examination. If necessary, he or she will order certain tests. These steps allow a doctor to rule out the possibility that some other disease or illness may be causing your symptoms. If your doctor determines that you have fibromyalgia, he or she can prescribe treatments and strategies to help you cope with this condition.
