There is no test for fibro. best test is looking for everything else and all comes back normal. Narcotics and cortisone are the only things that help me and the cortisone caused osteoporosis. doc told me it would, but it gave me 10 extra years of travel, camping, doing things with husband, - i feel i made best choice. My husband had a disease, and it took 8 months to even get a hearing with a disability court, then they scheduled a new hearing later. In 2004, i filled out a disability form, doctor wrote a note, and TWO WEEKS later i got a letter saying fibro automatically qualified me and I would get my first check in 30 days.
