    First of all he said, "I have heard of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" before. Code for: "I refuse to treat a CFS patient".

    Second he said, "We COULD do an MRI". Code for: Well, if this crazy lady wants to help pay for my MRI machine, I will certainly let her.

    The good news is. I went home...saw through his crap and cancelled the MRI. Then I decided to follow a Dr. Cheney recommendation of a sliver of Klonopin during the day and it really helped. Thank you Mikie for always talking about that!

    I went to see this doc who was recommended by a psychologist who deals with brain injuries. My sensitivity to light and sound has worsened. I was having a problem with what I thought was depression but what I now think is the "emotional liability" CFS patients can have. There is a big difference.

    Thank you to anyone who reads and responds.

    Don't you just love to hate those drs? I just finished one of my longest posts ever....after seeing my Primary Dr today. I just don't think they'll ever understand how we feel until they have FM/CFS themselves.

    I have Ativan, I wonder if it's supposed to help as much as Klonopin. I just took .5 mg cuz I'm feeling so stressed.

    Thanks for posting. It means alot. I have tried a nibble of xanax for this but it didn't help as well as the klonopin. I know that ativan and xanax are not the same thing but I "think" they are more similar than ativan and klonopin.
