My rheumatologist says that I have very high levels of Epstein-Barr CFS as well as FM, and there is nothing more that she can do for me. I'm on Duragisic and Vicodin, I've tried PT, OT, but am too rural for pool therapy and my insurance doesn't cover Pain Management Clinics alternative methods. I can't afford to take off any more time from work, or I'll lose my job and I carry the health insurance, and my meds cost over 2 grand a month without insurance coverage. The pain is getting worse, I sleep 10-12 hours a night, and can't do much of anything else other than my desk job and a tiny bit of house work. I don't know how much longer I can hang on to my job. I know it would take years to get disablity. Does anyone have any suggestions? I live in very rural northeast PA and am almost 55 year old female. I really need some direction, as my doctor really seems to be 'dumping' me. There are no other rheumatologists in the area and my PCP won't touch me any more. I'm going to my neurologist next month hoping he can help in some way. Thanks in advance.
