Are there other names for fibromyalgia ?

Fibromyalgia has been known by many other names, including chronic rheumatism, myalgia, muscular rheumatism, fibrositis, myofibrositis, and spinal irritation. Some of the terms once used to describe fibromyalgia, such as “morbid affectation” and “Charcot’s hysteria,” reflect an unfortunate tendency of the medical community to dismiss FMS as a form of hypochondria or mental illness. Before the development of sensitive, technologically advanced tests, fibromyalgia sufferers seemed to present no obvious measurable physiological changes.
