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.
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.
