About 8 years ago a doctor told me I had fm. I dismissed it because I got the impression she was making up something to humor me. Since then, I have 2 aunts who have been diagnosed with fm (one is an RN on disability now). My mother lives in constant pain and they are assuming she has MS but because her health insurance premiums have gone to $1200. per month just for her, she will not go get checked for fm even though my aunts and I have tried to get her to go. Do you have any advise or suggestions? As far as me, I'm still not sure I believe I have it but my internist is starting to look into it.
