    Hello Soreme.

    FM is such a difficult thing to deal with. I have been to all kinds of doctors. I think you have to keep going till you find a DR you like and will work with you. I have been to rheumos,orthopedists, neurologists, and GPs. I have also had physcial therapy which helped while I was getting it, but the pain came back as soon as it stopped. I also had corisone injections from one dr which did nothing. So, you see, its kinda hit and miss till you find one you like and a DR who is caring and will work with you.

    I think I have finally found that now after a few years of searching. My present dr is sending me to a pain clinic in June for help.

    Good luck to you and don't give up.

    Hi All

    Thanks for the responses I am at the start of this journey years later after many misdiagnosis - need to find a good doctor - dificult task in Ireland
    I am reading Fibromyalgia the first year and crying on every page as it is all me - finally someone who does not think I am a hypochondriac
    thankfully my partner is great

    Thanks all so much for taking the time to speak to me

    first i know there is a person or two from ireland that visits us here...she may know of a good dr to go to...

    i know she came out here in san francisco california a few months ago...and her son set her up w/appt to see a good dr...

    funny thing is he was the neurologist that i was seeing over 10 years ago...he was wonderful..

    i only changed because i insurance changed...

    I really just wanted to welcome you here, although I'm sorry you have FM.

    I don't feel well right now so I will keep it short.

    Just wanted you to know you have found a wonderful sight, with great people and a wealth of info and experience.

    You already have received great advice from our posters.:)

    Take care,

    Claudia
