    FIRST AND FOREMOST THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

    IVE BEEN ILL SINCE FEB 2006(SEE PROFILE FOR THE SYMPTOMS)
    SEEN 6 DOCTORS AND THESE ARE THERE GUESSES(OR DX)
    1. CFS & FM(RHEUMY)
    2. STRESS (INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST)
    3. VIRUS (NUEROLOGIST)
    THE OTHER 3 HAVE NO CLUE(GASTROLOGIST-ONCOLIGIST-GP)
    SO DO I GET MY PICK MY DX? I THINK THEY ALL WANT TO SEE HOW THIS ILLNESS PROGRESSES. I AM ALSO CONCIDERING SEEING ANOTHER RHEUMY AND OR GOING TO THE MAYO CLINIC IN AZ. I GET THE FEELING FROM THIS WEBSITE, WHICH IS AWESOME, THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE ONLY SEEN 1 OR 2 DOCTORS AND ARE EXCEPTING THEIR DIAGNOSES. ITS QUITE CLEAR FROM JUST MY EXPERIENCE THAT YOUR DX COULD BE WRONG !!!!!!!!!! WHEN DO YOU EXCEPT YOUR DX ???????????? AT WHAT POINT DO YOU QUIT LOOKING----------GOD BLESS AND HAVE A GREAT WEEK FOY

    I am so sorry for all the confusion you must be having, however, I have to agree with the previous post.....you may have them all?!

    I have Fibromyalgia, TMJ, Carpal Tunnel, Herniated Discs, RLS, Arthritis and moderate IBS. Most of those diagnoses were made after years of pushing doctors on different problems and a great deal of personal research. I still have a problem with my right shoulder that is undiagnosed.

    I believe most of us are on this board because we haven't stopped looking. That's how we found this place, and all it offers. If you read most of the posts, there are a great number of us who are still researching...still looking.

    Perhaps part of or one of your dx were incorrect, and you are right, we should not just accept the first word and let it go; but please don't make assumptions about people. I think in your heart you are trying to encourage, and maybe I am just reading it wrong.

    Do all you can for yourself, and share it with us so we can learn from you, as we do the same for you. Does that make sense??

    Blessings,
    Maia

    Just get a roulette wheel and spin it everyday. So monday you'll have fibro, tues:CFS wed:ibs etc etc

    They don't know and they don't care what we have. I have not found one compassionate doctor yet, I have seen about 8 going to see another one tuesday. When they are tired of us they'll send us to a specialist. It called a "punt" in the medical circles, I know, I used to be there.

    Sorry,
    Cathy

    ...is "stress". I certainly believe that stress can aggravate things for a lot of us, but I personally don't believe it is the whole cause of CFS/FM!

    Hope you find out some answers that seem to make sense to you...

    Hugs,
