Chutz sent me this and it is excellent.  I just posted this in the Fibro 101 thread and I don't want you folks to miss it.  It talks about the illness, shows the tender points chart, talks about how fibro is treated, and also what doctors are looking at to figure out what is causing this illness.  This is a great read!

Thank you for the article. When I went to see the Dr. that social security set up, she put pressure on those point and I about jumped put of my skin.OUCH!!! Of course she asked me if that hurt (silly ?) but she never said anything after that. Now I wonder if I suffer from fibro also.
