My older sister was diagnosed with FM many years ago, so at least I knew enough to eventually ask to be checked for it. Even so, I didn't get diagnosed right away. I saw a naturopath for years and was able to get some help but never completely resolved the problems. I complained to my primary-care doctor about my insomnia and pain levels, and she referred me to pain and sleep clinics without attempting to find out what might be the base cause of those problems. A nurse from the pain management class at the sleep clinic finally referred me to another doctor who diagnosed me with FM.
