No critique allowed[edit]

This article seems to be intentionally devoid of any criticism of "fibro." Lacks a LOT of balance in that aspect. Indeed, this is a disservice to the Wiki Community. Blondesareeasy (talk) 22:49, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Could someone please add the 6 Fibromyalgia Rapid Screening Tool (FiRST) questions?

Dopamine function[edit]

Should I add two primary source receptor binding studies for the dopamine section?

Genetic feature?[edit]

Most of the symptoms would be useful for knights on horseback wearing a full suit of armour. Like increased sensitivity to sound and pressure, less energy spent on walking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:21, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Not sure you understand how genetics work. Also the increased sensitivity (at least in my case) would not be a benefit. On days when it's bad, the pain it induces is crippling. Also I struggle to walk normally, I wouldn't stand a chance if you added a 50kg (110 lbs)suit of armour to the equation. Leeraven172 (talk) 13:57, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
