This past fall I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I am only 34 but feel 60!! I also have a sever case of RLS and I Take requip and klonopin at bedtime for it. I have been on these meds for 6yrs so they dont seem to be as effective. Over the past year I started having symptoms of just having pain every where and I was miserable. Finally I went to my doc and he gave me pain pills (which made a world of difference) and the referred me to a Rheumy. I went to that doc and I was treated like a number on a table. He reviewed my symptoms on paper and then said Yes you have fibromyalgia, then he handed me a pamplet and said see you in a few months. I asked him...what about the pain I am having and he said I dont treat it with pain meds so I said what am I suppose to to for relief. Again he reviewed my med list and said well the meds you are on should take care of it...again him not paying attention as to how long I have been taking them. I did start takin Lyrica but for me it wasnt effective. I will never go back to him but I do go to my reg doc this week to discuss things. Daily my legs hurt, my back hurts, my feet and hands. The muscles on my arms feel like they are being pulled away from the bone. My neck and shoulders are so tensce and stiff that I have to lay my head on a pillow. I also experience pelvic/hip pain and the menstrual cramps are horrifying. If i have 1 good day then I have 3 bad ones. Y do the docs think we do not need something for the pain??????
