I've decided to pursue FM research, support groups, etc. I have a half diagnosis from an associate of my primary care doctor, and no real cooperation from anyone else. I suspect I can get my PCP to go along with her associate, and I know my chiropractor will understand. I'm trying to struggle through physical therapy, not sure how much it will help after I leave and still end up with flare-ups. My symptoms are not quite as severe as some of yours, but I do have huge problems with stiffness, IBS and TMJ, brain fog, muscle spasms and tremors, and wake up with unrefreshed sleep. My question for you all, I know people with Celiac (wheat/gluten intolerance) who never get a firm diagnosis. They simply go wheat/Gluten free and feel better. This associate of my PCP said I should mentally definitely pursue this like I have FM--but no one I have seen does tender point tests, nor did she. I guess what I am asking is is it pretty much up to me to follow through on my own? I told my diabetes specialist I had FM, and he didnt question me. The Rheumatolgy dept told me never to come back, after only two visits and negative testing for RA and Lupus. There isnt too much else I can do. I did join a support group and I think their approach is a good one for me. I just want to know how many of you ever finally end up with a diagnosis or do you just live your life with self help and get help from your medical team when you can?
