    Hi everyone,

    I got a copy of my Rheumatologist report from my Dr's secretary, i need it for my Social Security Disability claim for which i am at the reconsidering stage.

    In his report he has suggested that i work with a Physiotherapist and is referring me to his Fibromyalgia Programme at the hospital clinic.

    Can you tell me what is involved in the Fibromyalgia Programme?

    Rheumy said i had 14 out of the 18 Fibromyalgia trigger points. Hope the programme will help me.

    Thank you all,

    Hope you all have a good day.

    Bronagh :)

    Can you call the Clinic and ask them what types of treatment they offer?

    I would assume it would be natural, alternative and PT but I'd rather know for sure before I walked in too.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I should have asked the Rheumy what is involved in the program, i wasn't thinking.

    I wasn't expecting him to put me on a program to be honest, i was taken back a bit because all i could think of was the 45 mile drive each time to hospital clinic, my hubby will do the driving, it's the thought of sitting in the car for an hour each way, it will kill me, i hate travelling.

    I'll have to give it a try.

    Thanks Michele,

    Bronagh :)
