I've been to two new rheumies for evals and a fabulous psychitrist... who knew rigth away that I have soemthing more* than fibromyalgia as I believe most everyone here does.... both of the rheumies I saw recommended infectious disease consults.... This is the first time in over 25 years of dealing with this sh*t that anyone has ever said those words!!!! soooo being skeptical at this point of anyone bearing any resemblance to a medical doctor LOL>>> *seriously*.... I hired a new primary at the beginning of the year after my old one fired me LOL>>>> I was highly upset but this has turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me!!!! anyway, to make a long story short... I have been diagnosed with not only fibromyalgia but now with LATE STAGE NEURO LYME DISEASE!!!!!!! Noone has ever bothered to test me... despite showing many a doctor many a rash.... I finally have a dermatologist that takes me seriously and when I told her the story about being worked up for it blood wise and presented with this rash ( like the ones I've been having off and on 25 years ya'll now... )... she biopsied it and it came back : positive reaction to arthropod bite.... but there was no bite! its left over lyme!!! here is my point::: don't give up.... keep looking and griping and complaining and doing whatever it is that you have to do to get what you need! I truely in my nursey heart feel that everyone here has some disease that causes this syndrome of fibromyalgia....tell em sticks and stone breaks bones but words can hurt me too....then just stick out your tongue at the bad ones LOL>>>>> there are way too many BAD doctors with little to now knowledge of the human body and its inner workings ( their speciality,right?) anyway.... I'll pop in and out to check your posts cause the fibro most likely won't go away but I'm off to IV land to see if we can rid me of this nasty infection that has been overlooked* for 25 years or so..... Good luck ya'll!!!!!
