For the past year and a half I've been from doctor to doctor (also moving state to state), and none of them can give me an answer. I just recently heard about FM, and after reading EXTENSIVELY, I suspected that that is what's wrong with me. For those of you that have been diagnosed, are there any of you whose main concern is the fatigue and not the pain? My pain is rather mild most of the time, though it does flare up and become more severe occasionally. The rheumatologist I recently saw told me it isn't FM if my main concern is the fatigue. I told him that I felt that if I could gain more energy, then the pain would be easier to deal with. I only reacted to two of the "tender points" he pushed that day, but on other days I find many more. He told me he doesn't believe in CFS. He prescribed exercise (as if I hadn't been trying that for at least two years). I'm so frustrated right now. I've been to two internists, ,a sleep specialist (had a sleep study), even asked my gynecologist about it,and now this rheumatologist. The only thing that's helped (in a small measure) is taking trazodone at bed time to help me get deeper sleep. Unfortunately, when I tell a new doctor this, they just write me a scrip for more trazodone and send me on my way. I practically have trazodone coming out of my ears now. I need someone to try something new for once, but I don't know how to make a doctor understand this. I mean, I would think that bluntly stating it would do the trick, but apparently, it doesn't. Oh--and of course I've had the usual thyroid tests show up as normal (even though I have almost all of the hypothyroidism symptoms). Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for getting a doctor to listen when you try to tell them that prescribing the same thing that hasn't been working for over a year isn't what you're looking for? This is getting ridiculous and very expensive.
