    I am a 56 yrold male with fibromyalgia, I have 3 sisters who were also "blessed"
    with fibro, many years ago . One of my problems seems to be that a lot of doctors
    don't believe that males can or do get fibro. Other doctors say things such as "
    "Fibromyalgia is just a trashcan diagnosis. I am wondering if I would be better off
    #1 in seeing a female doctor, who might be more apt to believe in fibro.
    and # 2would be more acceptable to the fact that males (although less likely)
    can and do get fibro ! I would appreciate any feedback or opinions on this subject.
    Thankyou for the opportunity to post this problem !
