Can Anyone Help Me!

3 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of questions I need answered.

 

1. Is Fibromyalgia an Autoimmune disease?

2. Does anyone know what the normal limits are for a PFT test?

 

Thank you all in advance

 

Take CAre

Celia,

Is Fibromyalgia an Autoimmune disease?

This is an interesting question, because you do find conflicting information on the Internet. However, most medical sites do not mention it as an autoimmune disease even though it is an "autoimmune like" condition. I found this through ISN at MedicineNet.com:

 

"Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition causing pain, stiffness, and tenderness of the muscles, tendons, and joints. Fibromyalgia is also characterized by restless sleep, awakening feeling tired, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and disturbances in bowel function. Fibromyalgia was formerly known as fibrositis."

 

Does anyone know what the normal limits are for a PFT test?

 

Here is a link from ISN that I use consistingly for my PFT's. It list several of the "normal limits."

 

PFT Interpretation

 

Hope this is what you were looking for.
