    I have an appointment with a social security neurologist in the morning, and I just can't sleep. So much is riding on whatever this guy writes in his report! My own neurologist and Pcp don't seem to believe in Fibromyalgia, so I have zero hope that this doctor will. Wish me luck. Marsha

    Well I went to the SSA Neurologist today. He conducted "the exam" at his desk. I was dressed in jeans, tennis shoes and a tee shirt and this guy listened to my carotid arterys and tapped my knees with his lil rubber hammer. Then he told me he was friends with my neurologist and would "go along" with whatever my neurologist's reports said. I honestly don't know whether I want to kill myself or kill them.

    I do feel set up to fail. Unfortunately for me, I have balance and coordination problems that are probably related to the fibro but somehow the medical system channeled me into this neurology thing. Thank you for answering my post. Marsha
