Well, now I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I have now been dx with severe fibro along with the cfs. Rheumy could not believe I had been turned down for disability either, he told me to start the refiling process right away. I guess I have known for a while I had this, it was just getting the docs to agree and dx me and put it in my chart. Read a good book tonite from a neighbor who also has fm (I believe it was Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain) and was enlightened a bit more. (But in my opinion, this board has helped me the most!!). Saw the dr on Tuesday and am still hurting soooo bad. It is about the worst its ever been with him poking and pushing everywhere to make sure. He also changed my meds from demerol to Neuronton and something else that I cant remember right now - what else is new! And he said that the pain I have been having in my tailbone is a deformity I was born with (and never had any trouble with before) and that the fms in my lower back is causing the lower back to spasm and the pain is radiating down to the tailbone. So now 2 questions answered - FINALLY! So, I guess I will be here more often now that I feel like I officially belong! lol Gentle hugs and best wishes to all!
