What are your other symptoms?
If you go to lupus.org you will find the list of 11 indicators of lupus. You have to match at least 5 of these to be considered for lupus.
Fibromyalgia has several indicators. It is usually ruled as a last diagnosis. They rule everything out before they declare fibromyalgia. The fibro list can be found on the fibro forum under "fibro 101".
