    Thank you for posting @Andy

    One thing from the abstract that strikes me:
    What other disease get an acceptable diagnosis that has a sensitivity and specificity this low? Such test would not be acceptable for HIV.

    I am calling on to @Jonathan Edwards to please tell us what the lupus diagnosis criteria S&S is comparable and whether this is acceptable considering that fibromyalgia is usually a diagnosis for life.

    Disclaimer, I did not read the full paper.
