Hi everyone, I am very happy to have found this board. This is the first time that I have written a msg here. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 10 months ago by my doctor (internal medicine). She was great and extremely helpful. Unfortunately, she has left the practice and has moved out of state. When I tried to explain my symptomss to the new doctor that I have been assigned to he told me that many doctors to not believe that fibromyalgia exists and that my daily pain and other symptoms are only there because I am depressed and that they are basically all imagined symptoms. I am crushed. I am an exhausted mother of five young children, my husband (who is away at work 60-70 hrs. a week) doesn't seem to believe that my symptoms are real & I hurt CONSTANTLY! Has anyone else had a similar experience? I guess that I just need some moral support. Thanks for listening.
