Another reason why you should really be asking yourself whether your fibromyalgia is primary or secondary is because many medical conditions that trigger fibromyalgia can remain undiagnosed for years. This is because the symptoms can blend seamlessly with the large pool of fibromyalgia symptoms. An expert in Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue and author in, Adrienne Dellwo wrote that she would not be as functional if she did not find out that she is also suffering from MPS after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

It is important to find the root of your fibromyalgia or rather what triggered your fibromyalgia. Discuss with your doctor to find out if you have any underlying medical conditions or even food sensitivities that could be causing your fibromyalgia symptoms.
