Mary...the day I got my fibro dx I was relieved, as I had imagined that I had every disease known to man from looking symptoms up in books...No Google back then. Just say 'No' to Google' if you have any kind of health anxiety. Like others have said, trigger points change from day to day. I only had six the first time also. I believe that you do not have to have them all to get a fibro diagnosis...they migrate. My doctor based my dx more on my symptoms, and what was ruled out in blood work and MRI'/ CAT scans then tender points.
