Women and men living with fibromyalgia do not have characteristic or consistent abnormalities on laboratory testing. However, routine laboratory and imaging studies are important to help rule out diseases with similar manifestations and to assist in diagnosis of certain inflammatory diseases that frequently coexist with fibromyalgia. These are the lab tests commonly checked by physicians treating fibromyalgia patients: CMP, CBC, Urinalysis, TSH, Vitamin D & B-12, Iron/TIBC, Magnesium in RBC, ESR and CPK.

The term fibromyalgia came from the Latin word “fibro” (fibrosis tissue), and the Greek terms for “myo” (muscle) and “algia” (pain).

Women and men living with fibromyalgia do not have characteristic or consistent abnormalities on laboratory testing. However, routine laboratory and imaging studies are important to help rule out diseases with similar manifestations and to assist in diagnosis of certain inflammatory diseases that frequently coexist with fibromyalgia. These are the lab tests commonly checked by physicians treating fibromyalgia patients:

  • Complete Blood Count (CMP): White and red blood cells, hemoglobin, platelets, and other variables. CMP helps detect any potential infections or anemia.

 

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): Gucose, Kidney and liver function, electrolytes and other variables. CMP helps to detect diabetes, organ dysfunction, electrolyte inbalances, and other issues.

 

  • Urinalysis: Screens for a variety of conditions including urinary bladder disease, kidney disease and diabetes.

 

  • Thyroid-stimulating hormone: Hypothyroidism shares many clinical features with fibromyalgia, especially diffuse muscle pain and fatigue.

     

  • 25-Hydroxy vitamin D level: Low levels can cause muscle pain and tenderness.

     

  • Vitamin B-12 level: Very low levels can cause pain and fatigue.

     

  • Iron studies, including serum iron, total iron-binding capacity, percent saturation, and serum ferritin: Iron deficiency is very common in fibromyalgia patients and can cause or worsen fatigue, poor sleep, and depressive symptoms.For patients with restless legs syndrome, percent saturation should be maintained above 20% and serum ferritin should be kept above 50 ng/mL.

     

  • Magnesium in Red Blood Cells: Low levels can lead to muscle spasms, which are common in fibromyalgia patients; magnesium supplementation can also improve symptoms in some fibromyalgia patients; recommended magnesium levels in fibromyalgia patients are at least 2 mEq/L.

     

  • The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is often recommended as a routine laboratory test in fibromyalgia patients to rule out the presence of inflammatory disorders that may mimic symptoms. The upper limit of normal for the ESR in women is half their age (eg, a level of 40 in an 80-year-old women is normal), and in men is half their age minus 10.

 

  • CPK- Creatine Phosphokinase : CPK is an enzyme found mainly in the heart, brain, and skeletal muscle.High CPK can indicate muscle destruction, heart attacks, central nervous system issues, and others. Long term exposure to high CPK can load up your kidneys and may cause muscle loss and weakness. Sometimes we have no symptoms when CPK is high, but most of the time we have body aches and soreness.
