Wonder if you have CFS or fibromyalgia? If you have had severe fatigue or widespread pain lasting over three months without an obvious cause, and if you also have insomnia, then you might have chronic fatigue syndrome and/or fibromyalgia. The checklist below can help you assess the possibility of this. If your score indicates you might, then you should consult a physician to find out for sure.
(Note: If you already know that you have CFS or fibromyalgia, you might want to skip this checklist and instead head over to Dr. T's Energy Analysis Program, where you can take a 10-minute quiz to get an instant personal evaluation of how you can improve your energy.)
The Checklist uses two sets of criteria to evaluate your posibility of having CFS or fibromyalgia. Questions 1-5 are based on criteria established by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) for evaluating a person's possibility of having CFS. Questions 6-10 are based on criteria established by the ACR (American College of Rheumatology) for evaluating a person's possibility of having fibromyalgia.
