    I have a dr. apt tonight at 7, i dont want to sound like im self DX'ing, but i truely believe i have FIBRO..and it would solve so many of my unexplained issues... I have the master symptom list checked up and ready, i have a list of all my DR's from the past 5 yrs...cause i just moved here, and have only seen him once, and he informed me my pain is in my head, but he didnt know im chronic... so i really hope he has delt w/ fibro before and believes...and can help me...or he refers me out to someone who does...i am not good at sticking up for myself...so i hope i can get the answers i want... i have my old MRI, that has my everyday issues..that wouldnt include chronic back pain... i just dont want to here, "take this and come back in...""" u know...well ill let u all know tonight...ttyl..beck

    Good luck, I hope your visit goes well. Informed doctors are so hard to find. I'll check back tomorrow and see how it went for you.

    Im happy w/ the results...he is a supporteer of Fibro, he reconizes it as a real ilness, or whatever it is considered...he wanted to start me on an ANTI D again(which i declined) and neurontin, which i accepted, ive used before and it rocked then...and refered me to a rhueomotoligist..or however its spelled. However
    Neurontin script is concerning me.
    300 mg; 1 tab 2x a day for a week, then 2 tabs 2x a day for a week, then 3 tabs 2x a day for continuance...does that sound right??? before i was only taking 1, 300 2x to 3x a day...and it was pretty fine...well any imput...thanks beck

    yeah ive never been on any more then 900 a day, 1 believe i took 2 am, 1 pm....i was suposed to take 3x a day but forgot to in the middle of the day. i would think to go straight up that high would be stupid, since eventually the body becomes immune, and then at 1800 u cannot go any higher to help u...well im gonna stick to a lower done, do 300 2 to 3 x a day....cause it worked before,,,if it doesnt kick in then up i will go... thanks again..beck

    Glad you feel positive about your doctor visit. I took neurontin for a while. I seem to remember my doc starting me on a very low dose of 300 mg per day. Anyway, sure hope it helps you out, it does for some doesn't for others just like everything else.

    Have a good day,
