Fibromyalgia (FM) Criteria and Severity Scales for Clinical and Epidemiological Studies: A Modification of the ACR Preliminary Diagnostic Criteria for Fibromyalgia. The criteria are simple to use and administer, but they are not to be used for self-diagnosis. The FM Symptom scale may have wide utility beyond the bounds of FM, including substitution for widespread pain in epidemiological studies. Frederick Wolfe. The Journal of Rheumatology vol. 38 no. 6 1113-1122. (Also see: Fibromyalgia)
