My name's Lisa. Just got back from seeing a new physician and as I was giving her what my husband refers to as "the litany", she listened and listened and finally said, "Have you considered fibromyalgia?" I've been reading up on it for the last few months or so and most of the symptoms sounded familiar (the pain, the CogFog, fatigue, etc), but another doctor I saw clearly thought I was insane and that nothing was wrong with me. This new doctor all but diagnosed me - after poking around and examining my ribs (I also have costochondritis, which I noticed about 3 years ago, but the last doctor just poked at and said, "Hmmm."), she ordered bloodwork which should be back tomorrow. She seemed to think she'd be able to rule out just about everything she was testing for. She spent time with me and listened to me. I almost started crying. I'm 37 and it's been many years of back pain, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel, poor sleep, crabbiness, brainfog, tender points, trigger points and who knows what else... since I was a teenager! I'm 37 now and refuse to let this disorder go any further. I've been under a lot of stress the last year or so and have to learn how to get myself together. It's such a vicious cycle. She prescribed Trazodone to help with the sleep issue (I can fall asleep, but I'm not staying there) and though I'm not a drug-taker by nature, I might consider this. Anyone have personal experience? How about diet modification? I already try to exercise almost every day if I can. Anyway, hello! I look forward to learning and sharing with others.
