Hi fellow sufferers. I'm newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia. After x-rays, MRI and CT tests, etc., etc., they finally decided there is "nothing wrong with me", and that I must have fibromyalgia. I have so many of the symptoms and get so tired for no reason, and I'm glad to finally know why. My problem is that my personal physician (I'm a member of an HMO) kinda scoffs at fibromyalgia. She says if the Dr. doesn't know what's wrong with you, they dump you in that category. Therefore, I feel I can get no guidance or help from her for any of my problems I'm encountering with this syndrome. The Dr. that diagnosed me was with the Physical Medicine Department, and is really caring and knowledgeable about it. But since diagnosing me, he has passed me on to my regular doctor and the Pain Management Department. They have given me stretching exercises which, when I attempted to do them, gave me sciatica so bad in one leg that I had to stop them. I am so glad I found this support group, and look forward to learning a lot and being able to "vent" sometimes. God Bless you all!
