I am 23 years old male and suffering from chronic shoulder and neck pain since last 4 years. I had taken treatment from neurologists but it does not worked. All my reports such as MRI, X Ray, and other blood tests are normal. Haven't done diagnosis for fibromyalgia but my symptoms exactly matched with fibromyalgia symptoms. Will you help me?
