Hi everyone I am 22 and have been sick for almost a year now and today i have just decided that I hate it and it is ruining my life. I have just been told by a friend about fibromyalgia two weeks ago and I am certain I have it. This is my first post on this site and I almost just want someone who understands me to talk to as well as I am worried to tell my doctor about my fear that I have fibromyalgia. As all the doctors I have gone to in the last year have either told me that my sickness is phycological or that their is nothing wrong with me. Which is soo untrue cuz their are no other 22 year olds around me that can't go to party's and are sick all the time. Also I tried to ask a friend of mine who is a nurse and she ignored me. I really don't want to tell my current doctor that I think I have FM because out of all the doctors I have gone to this past year he has been the most understanding, but he has shown signs that lead me to believe he wont really like the whole FM word. So my question is Should I tell him and risk going through what, as I've read in other posts, many of you have experienced time and time again by being shut down by your Doctor. Or should I try a few life changing things, herbal medicines ect before bringing it up to him? Please reply to me, today I am desperate as I have never before been. Lol and maybe I can sort how how to use this site without bursting into tears every two seconds and find your reply Cheers!!!!!
