I did some looking at the Fibro Mialgia and in the past it was considered to be part of the auto immune spectrum so there is a lot of controversy about that. As you said it is complicated because it involves the conective tissue. To me though this really sounds like it is related. anyway what ever you decide to do I do hope you find a way to have some relief.
And regarding the inflamation indicators... I don't know, I don't know what they use as their determination as to what is an indication of it... but since you have considerable pain... you may want to just try eliminating the gluten.. Like I said it is actually easy to do and you would know right away.
This is what I do know once I eliminated the gluten there were things that I didn't realize were tied to it.
IT is one of those things.
For me being pain free, itch free and considerably healthier was worth the giving up of the gluten. I did not do the medical test... I just quite eating the gluten. ANd as I discovered what went away when I quit eating it I realized I had been having issues my whole life.
