i am going to see a new doctor later today. well, actually, he is the first doctor i went to, back when i first got sick. the word Fibromyalgia never came up with him. he diagnosed me Chronic Persistant Mono, based on bloodwork. said it could go away in a week or it could take months. gave me some pain meds, and steriods, and i was on my way. i wasn't sold on this idea, and switched PCP. along that road, i was diagnosed w/ FM. was being treated by a NP, and was dropped, because they thought i was not taking meds, and that's why i'm going to new doc. i've been having alot of problems with my arms lately. waking up 2-3 x/night with agonizing pain, can't use hands, numbness in arms and hands. and recently found a cyst in my wrist. when they asked me why i needed to be seen, i told them i found a cyst in my wrist and it was painful. they got me in the next day. i'm not sure how to approach this, beings the negative treatment i've gotten from mentioning FM. should i mention FM, or just say the pain has never gone away through the past year, and now is in my arms, and i've found this cyst? i desperatly need help, and don't know how to approach the situation. any advice from anyone?
