Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on HCM. Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that your doctor must have examined you properly before saying that there is nothing significant . Rest if you want to make things crystal clear you get a 2 D ECHO done if that comes normal there is nothing to worry about then . The pains that you are mentioning are very non specific and will be non significant if your ECHO comes normal . Take care. Dr. Shruti

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, If your doctor thinks then yes there can be a probability for fibromyalgia which is very common in people of your age and in that also patient can experience varied kind of pains. It needs to be seen if tender points are present in you although their absence does not rule out fibromyalgia. Dr. Shruti
