Not surprisingly, fibromyalgia is so commonly diagnosed today by traditional doctors, since fibromyalgia is usually hypothyroidism that is being misdiagnosed. Family doctors, general practitioners and rheumatologists are doctors who usually treat fibromyalgia.
There is no diagnostic test for this. Doctors make a diagnosis by performing physical examinations, assessing symptoms and ruling out other conditions. For example, a condition with similar symptoms, hypothyroidism, is often confirmed with a blood test. Herein lies the problem. You cannot rely on a blood test to diagnose hypothyroidism!
Why traditional doctors do not correctly diagnose hypothyroidism
Traditional doctors are taught to observe only one blood test, the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test, when it comes to evaluating a patient for symptoms of hypothyroidism. Therefore, when this blood test returns to “normal range”, your doctor does not know what to do.
