I have had fibro for approx 12 years. But things seems to be getting worse with my fibro. My pain is constant and I am taking more pain medication then ever before (still within the prescribed dosage). I am always looking for another reason I am sick other than the fibro. So my question is "When do I accept this dx and stop looking for other causes?" I, like many others who suffer from this disease, have other health issues. I always feel like "I couldn't possibly feel this bad from fibro alone". I'm seeing my PMD on Monday and want to prioritize my questions. Can anyone help/counsel me on this? I feel like I always tell the doctor- everything is the same, but I need more pain relief. Right now things are so bad that my social life is almost nil. I retired 3 years ago due to this disease and now I feel housebound 95% of the time. Any help, suggestions, opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
