A new topic on fibromyalgia that has been brought to my attention is adrenal fatigue. I first became aware of it after my husband read an article about it. I have also seen many articles about the topic over social media. With so much talk about adrenal fatigue in a week, I decided to do a little bit of research. I was shocked about what I found and how fibromyalgia and adrenal fatigue are related.
Physicians use a variety of tests to determine whether a patient has fibromyalgia verses another condition with similar symptoms and include: a complete blood count, antinuclear antibody, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, thyroid stimulating hormone, and a rheumatoid factor test, all of these tests are performed by a simple blood test.
