In effect, pain has become the conceptualjustification for rheumatology. More than anything else, this fact accounts for rheumatology's imprecisely defined professional jurisdiction, relatively inglorious history marked by only modest therapeutic successes, and lack of prestige relative to many other medical specialties. The professional limitations of rheumatology, therefore, are largely a result of the profession's close association with pain, its explanation, and its treatment. For example, because pain falls within rheumatology'S jurisdiction, the subfield has found itself historically and contemporarily facing a mass of patien t referrals that share, wi th any certain ty, only one thing-the subjective experience of bodily pain.

Researchers claim that Fiv[S is characterized by single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) images that show decreased blood flow to a location in the brain involved in nociception (Mountz et al. 1995). This research is criticized as being riddled with methodological flaws, most centrally involving the selection of appropriate controls (Abeles 1998). Research has yet to compare patients with FMS with other chronic pain patients. It is unclear, therefore, ifthe observed SPECT alterations are unique to FMS or common to pain states more generally.

Another critic noted that the diagnosis is effectively meaningless in the Amish context, because these individuals will notjoin support groups that perpetuate a sense of common misery, seek to have their disability affirmed, and generally "turn a common symptom into a remunerative industry" (Ehrlich 2003: 1666). In the minds of critics, this study merely found that tl1e Amish have a high number of tender points, which is not to say they are a part of what we understand, either socially or medically, to be the FMS phenomenon.
