I also have a lupus-like autoimmune condition that is to date nameless and fibromyalgia. The fibro diagnosis came first, before any testing for real disease was done and it was difficult for anyone to test me further once that was in my chart. For a last case diagnosis it sure comes up as a first line diagnosis with women. Men are never diagnosed with fibro. That would be an interesting poll.
