I'm no expert, but isn't the Mayo clinic consider a pretty good authority?
What the experts will also tell you is no empirical manifestations exist. Empirically quantifiable/measurable manifestations exist for just about everything but not fibro. Also, being in healthcare, I've come across numerous people that claim to have it. All female, all of a certain personality profile, not or underemployed, and usually do not have to worry about an income. I may be leaping to an unwarranted conclusion, but until I have some solid peer reviewed data on quantifiable manifestations of this disease, I'm going to say the vast majority of fibro is attention seeking and to explain why you're a miserable failure as a person.
Again, I'll re-evaluate my position once some actual clinical data is present to indicate a diagnosis.
