    "FM as a stand alone diagnosis is however rare, as most patients with FM meet criteria for other chronic overlapping pain conditions or mental disorders"

    This raises so many questions, but one worries that like ME too many people use it as an excuse to take the condition less seriously or even question its 'reality'.

    [added - especially as there may be similar over and under diagnosis of the other conditions. ]
