    I need to get a new doctor, but i want to know how im going to approach the doc before I go in there and just stumble over my words and forget what i want to mention...

    Do i : a. tell her i have fibro
    b. dont tell her i have fibro

    if i dont tell her, than what do i say when she asks what meds im on and i say pamelor and lexapro. if i say im depressed, then i run into the problem of it looking like im a whiner.

    or do i tell her and take the chance of her writing me off as another helpless case.

    Do i take tons of information pamphlets in on other doc's theories on how to treat it? I've been having new symptoms lately that are really bothering me and want to get in as soon as possible...
    please help me with this!!!
    thanks- spaz
