    I finally got my appt. I had to drive so far and didn't sleep good, but it went pretty good. I went to someone referred from the Washingtom DC metro support post, a Dr. Moriority. He was running behind, and that helped me calm down and fill out the papers.

    I had just been dx with dry eye this week, so I did ask about Sjogren's, as I am always pushing to get to the bottom of this whole mess and make sure its not just fibro or cfs. I heard him talking about fibro to another patient so he seems to know his stuff. He is going to run a bunch of blood work, including "random corisol". Anyone know what that is? I had mentioned adrenal fatigue.

    He did mention trying cymbalta again. Yuck, that's the main problem I have is med sensativities, and I have already been on that. Does seem very proactive and said we will get to bottom of this. AM staying on the tramadol. He prescribed an Nsaid but I will not be able to take that either. Glad to have made some progress!

    He sounds pretty good to me, May I ask how long it took to get the appointment?

    Thanks,

    Oh I just noticed your question! Actually wasn't too long...I got the referral Jan 11 and the appt Feb. 1. 3 weeks, am going back Feb. 22. Do you live in the area? Will keep everyone informed. I just called my prievious HMO from like 1988 and am requesting records form 1994 when the mess began, to be sent to me....I know it will cost.

    Is dry eye related to fibro?
