Welcome, Guesswhat and Amber Jo, to the fibromyalgia forum.  I started this thread because I didn't want to "highjack" Mazfire's fog thread.  I'm so glad you found us and joined in.
Check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibromyalgia, including a list of symptoms and also a link to What Else Could It Be.  These are very informative links.
Fibromyalgia isn't an inflammatory illness...at least that's what the doctors are telling us right now.  If you really have inflammation in your joints, it is probably some other problem.  But, the pain from fibromyalgia can FEEL like inflammation.  Your doctor or a rhuematologist can run tests and tell you if you do have inflammation going on.  They can also help rule out other illnesses.  If everything is negative, then a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is usually given.
Read back posts and ask questions.  We are here to help you.  I hope to hear more from both of you soon.

I've gotten a little behind here too this week so welcome Guesswhat and Amber Jo and anyone else I may have missed. With the fog I sometimes forget who I have welcomed.
luv and hugs
