In the last week I have spent over $500 on medical bills, dr visits and Rx's. They just diagnosed me with FM after years of pain. I'm not sure when it started. It was nothing sudden. I've had three children in the last 5 1/2 yrs so I tend to track my timeline of pain using the birth of my children as points of reference. Back to the point ... why is the all the medicine associated with the treatment of FM so expensive?
