Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and Fibromyalgia are the most common. Dr. Jessica Short says that Fibromyalgfia is the hardest to diagnose. " There's not a test that you can do, there's not a specific way to diagnose it... the main criteria is just all over body pain."
Dr. Short does say that patients can help their doctors by really focusing on where the pain is originating from " I think patients can be their own best advocate by paying attention to what's really bothering them."
