Yeah, diagnosing fibro is sort of hard. There really aren't any tests, no specific signs. It can look like a LOT of other things. People with Fibro often have depression, but whether they go together or one is caused by the other, no one knows. It sucks because there is no test. There's no xray to show it. Nothing. And treating it appears to be difficult too since there isn't a single "cause" everyone agrees on.
Things that are either part of it or go hand in hadn with it:
difficulty sleeping (a BIG one for most people)
sensitivities to lights,odors, or sounds
depression and/or anxiety
