Hello to all of my new "Fibro Friends"! I just found this message board and started reading, sounds like we all have the same frustrations with this disease. I was diagnosed 2+ years ago after years of random symptoms. It was always the same. I'd go to the Dr. only to be told "There is nothing wrong" So frustrating! My PCP finaly sent me to a Rheumatologist who made the diagnosis of FM. He wasn't very helpful and even said "you really don't have it so bad, my patients with arthritis are the ones in great pain. I guess he figured if you can't see it, then it shouldn't hurt. I stayed with him for about 8 months then had my PCP refill my meds even though she didn't want to. Last Jan. I ask her for a disabled parking tag and she acted real funny. She said that walking is good for me. I agree that walking is good exercise but in the winter it's so hard that most of the time I just stay home. She ended up giving me a temporary tag and suggested ~again~ that I needed to see a Rheumy for this. She said "I just don't do Fibromyalgia" I went to see a new Rheumy last Thur. and guess what? She was NO HELP either. She thought if I exercised more that I would be cured. What the %#**? I live in Northern Indiana ~ in Notre Dame territory ~ If anyone out there knows of a good Dr. in this area I would love to hear about them. Have a beautiful day!
