    My family dr had been managing my fibro. A few weeks ago I was sent to a rheumatologist. He said there is no such thing as a fibro flare up. He said that there is something else going on in your body that makes you feel worse and you THINK it is the fibro.

    I did NOT like the dr. Can anyone suggest a GOOD fibro dr in/around Sioux Falls, SD?

    When I told him amitriptilene caused me to gain weight, he told me that the med "has zero calories. It is NOT causing you to gain the weight. It is the eating you are doing from taking it that is the weight gain and that is YOUR choice." That was about the time I almost walked out.

    TRY WALKING IN OUR SHOES.

    Soft Hugs to All,

    I think you already know that though..

    I had a nuroligist ask me if i was sexually abused as a child because she believes that was what was causing all my FM symptoms
