    They don't explicitly mention the possibility that some of the people not classified as having fibromyalgia could have fibromyalgia if they were examined.

    It also doesn't distinguish between the 1990 definition for Fibromyalgia that requires tender points and the broader definition that had came in in 2010 (?) that doesn't require tender points.

    All the data is in the tables which are not complicated to understand.
    I'm not sure the text adds much extra.
