Please anyone out there help me. For years now I have been in bad pain from my lower back and knees. The first doctor I mentioned this to said if these areas hurt, don't touch them. It took me another two years to have the nerve to bring this up again. I finally did. I had an MRI, a ct scan, many blood tests, most normal until I emded up in the emrgency room one night and had a HORRIBLE time with open gall bladder surgery, a fourth degree burn, and 5 day hospital stay. I have been horrible since and that has been almost a year ago now. I went to my doctor, he diagnosed me with polymyalgia rhuematica. He sent me to a Rhuemy and within 5 minutes said I definitely did not have polymyalgia rheumatica. However, she would not even discuss FM. I am absolutely convinced that I have FM but she would not talk about it. I am in severe pain, wanting to sleep 15 hours a day and just miserable, but cannot get anyone to listen to me... Any suggestions? Anyone in West Michigan with any suggestions of a doctor who speacilizes in FM?
