Fibromyalgia Assessment Tool

There is a lot of confusion regarding the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) established guidelines in 1990 that were completely changed in 2010.  In 2016, the guidelines were once again updated.  This brief online tool uses the most up to date guidelines to calculate whether your symptoms could be diagnosed as fibromyalgia.
