hi all. I find myself coming often to this web site for information. My primary care dr retired last month. I had him for close to 15 years. I had a bad flare up two weeks ato and I went to another dr who basically told me I have fibro, its chronic, get used to it, and left the room. So today i try another dr. he is going to run some tests but only the normal everyday blood tests, he says then we do a physical and go from there. Physical is July 6!! He said that I should exercise in a pool daily, and walk. Appparently this guy doesn't understand I work full time and am too darn tired after work to do much of anything. Ant besides, the only pool around is the Y and after work in the summer time they are full of kids. Then he said he doesn't believe in giving narchotics for fibro...i have been taking percocet and/or vicodine for years if and when i needed it to help with pain. I want my old dr. back!!!
