    Looks like you have a jerk doctor!! A least he is sending you somewhere that you can get treatment for your pain. Never believe it is all in your head!! You have my sympathy. I do not have FM my husband does. My sister is being tested to rule out other things but looks like she may have it also. She is also being treated like a druggie by doctors and family members (not me.)The best thing that you can do is educate yourself here on the message board.
