To aid physicians and patients alike, the ACR has identified 18 tender points located in pairs around the neck, shoulders, joints, and pelvis. A diagnosis of fibromyalgia can be established if extensive pain has lasted for 90 days or more and at least 11 of the tender points cause pain when 4 kilograms (8.8 pounds) of pressure are applied.
