FM/a is a blood test that can determine whether you have Fibromyalgia. Over the course of 25 years of research they have found certain bio-markers in the blood that they believe objectively show whether or not a person has Fibromyalgia.
The FM Test, a simple blood test with more than 93 percent sensitivity, now makes it possible for anyone to find out if they have fibromyalgia. The FM Test costs $744 with conclusive results available to most patients usually in a week or less – a fraction of the time and money the average patient currently spends seeking a diagnosis.
I have a feeling that like many blood tests for many things it may not be covered by insurance for a while. I am, personally, hoping that it will soon be covered and become widely accepted. The acceptance of an actual blood test to show a positive diagnosis for Fibromyalgia would take us out of the realm of a disorder that people often dismiss and don’t believe exists, to (as their website puts it) an immune system dysregulation disease. They claim that the test is 93% sensitive (almost 30% more sensitive than the blood test for Rheumatoid Arthritis. For more information about the test, and updates, check the FM/a website.
This test expands on the idea that many researchers have been looking into for years, that there is a genetic marker for Fibromyalgia.
