Hello everyone I'm somewhat new here. Been reading a lot of good support on here. God Bless for all your struggles and enlightenment. Was bed ridden for 2 yrs. My doctor had me do osteopathic therapy for 1 1/2 yr. and different medications. Went through the phsycological thing to the point I almost thought it was all in my head. I brought up FMS and my doctor said he dosen't believe in it. Anyway I went to the library and got 3 big books on FMS and MFS. My jaw dropped I had everything in the books. He diagnosed it as muscleskeletal chronic pain. I took the books in to the dr. office and told him. A couple of visits later he recommended I go to a pain management clinic. I did. My second visit to the pain clinic and she diagnosed me with FMS,MFS, CFS, bursitis, and neck strain. What a blow. She started me with a physical therapist. I started stretches and walking in a warm pool 3 times a week. I seen my dr. yesterday and told her that I had 25% improvement in my upper buttocks. So she examined my shoulder blades and neck. When she pressed on different areas she asked if it hurt and I said no. I told her that it is deep in my muscles. It's almost like my muscle by the surface doesent have much feeling. Now I feel like she doesn't believe me or that I am lying about my pain. Now she wants me to go to pt 2 times week, plus pool, and pt exercises at home. I'm drained just thinking about it all. I feel like I have to persavere and do it all. She also scheduled me with a different dr. in the same clinic? I think for cortizone shot. Anyway I haven't worked in 3 yrs. and running up bill after bill.(no insurance) I applied for disability and I go before the judge in june for my appeal. I am still in a lot of pain but not bed ridden so I guess that is an improvement, but still not even close to a normal life. Now I just had her examine me for carpel tunnel syndrome for my wrists and hand have been numb for a bout a month. She said we'll keep an eye on it. I feel like she thinks I'm lying and now I'm really stressed. Any suggestions appreciated. Peace and good health to all.
