I'm just wondering because the more I learn about it, that's the feeling I get. Since being diagnosed just a month ago everytime I tell someone they say they know at least one other person with fibromyalgia. I just feel like it's something that can't be quickly diagnosed. I feel confident in my dr. diagnosing me because I have back and forth to the dr., specialists, etc. for almost 10 years. I've done everything and tried everything with no success. Then when my surgeon told me that I definitly had more then 11 of the 18 tender points (I actually think there are more then 18) I was certain. Finally, an answer to my mystery illness. Plus even though I had heard of fibro before that day I really didn't know what it was. So when I came home and looked it up I literally started crying. There it was in front of me. I feel sad to have this disease but relieved to know I'm not crazy. Now I can begin to move on. Anyway, I'm getting away from my original topic. Do you all ever feel that way about fibro being over diagnosed? My dr. told me that he had a lady come in that had only been his patient for a couple of months and told him she had fibro. Maybe she does but I feel there may people who say this because it can't really be scientifically proven. However, those of us with it don't need a scientific test because we know how we feel everyday! I'm sorry that I'm rambling but this past month has been a rollercoaster for me. I guess I haven't been able to wrap my mind around what my life with fibromyalgia means and I don't know what to do next.
