    Well, I went to the doctor on Tuesday and to my pleasant suprise he does believe in FM and CFS. To start with he is doing numerous tests on me. I had a ton of blood drawn - thought I was at the blood bank they took so much. Then he did a chest x-ray. I have a cat scan scheduled for Tuesday. He wants to rule out any other diseases first. Which was good. He is not writing me off as some nut case. He basically said I didn't get this way over night, so I am not going to feel relief over night. Which is true. But it does feel good to at least have a doctor who wants to work with me. I will keep everyone posted on the results of my test. Thanks to everyone for all of their good luck wishes and kind words. This is by far the best message board I have ever seen.
