Hi everyone. Well, I had two dr. visits today. My neurologist said that he definitely thought I had Fibromyalgia (after countless tests) and signed the disability paper for two months disability, but said he could change that if need be as time goes on. He also gave me a prescription to help me sleep (trazadone). He assured me that what I'm feeling is not in my head and that when most doctors went to medical school not much was known about it, and it was dismissed as psychosomatic. Then I had a visit with a rheumatologist in another city that I'd heard good things about. He seemed pretty knowledgable about FMS and said that he had no doubt whatsoever that I had it. He said I also had CFS as well. He then said that there is nothing that can be done for either and that since the medications I've tried (Elevil, Nortriptyline) didn't work, he won't be prescribing any medication. He said there is no cure as of yet, and that herbal supplements are a waste of money. He also said that he does not sign disability forms for insurance companies or employers for people with these conditions because there is no way he can tell just how bad people have it. (look at what it's done to my lifestyle, how 'bout, hmmmm?) I'm a husband, 35yrs old with three children from 11 to 3. I started out working as a salesrep then as health declined (in June) I went to office work, then working from home on my computer (all with the same company). Now (Since January) I spend my days and nights sitting,eating, and sleeping on a LazyBoy. I rarely leave the house! My wife works as much as she can, I have no disability insurance (yet), our resources are gone, bills aren't getting paid.....AAauuuugghhh! How do people make it if they are the main provider and can't work?? Anyway, I'm a little bummed because now I have a diagnosis, but don't know where to go from here. I need medicine for pain and all the other symptoms you all have! I was hoping that once the diagnosis was made, I could start treatment with different drugs. Now I'm told there is no treatment. I expected to have to deal with my ringing ears, but not everything....forever! I need your advice, please. I'm fed up with the hassles of this DD. I've been told the same stories the rest of you have heard from "It's psychosomatic", "you're depressed", etc. I even took a $1200.00 six hour psychological evaluation which showed I wasn't depressed or phsychosomatic, but DID show that I was having short-term memory problems (fibro-fog) and otherwise normal. I wasn't depressed before, but if this continues.... HELP! P.S. Sorry this is so long. I really needed to vent. Thanks.
