    after about 5 years with chrohns-
    i got peritonitis and almost kicked the bucket-
    and right after that is when i started hurting allll over.
    went to bone dr cause i didnt know what to do or where to go.
    and he didnt kniow either,
    i was a wreck and couldnt find help- as i was leaving his office-
    his secratary said for me to try a rhumey!
    i was so surprised and so i did-
    and he was the one who dx-ed me..
    . finally after about 3 years of agony and going from dr to dr...
    then, after seeing him for a couple of years
    - he couldnt help me anymore- can you believe it???
    and now i have been going to pain clinics...
    not alll are in it to help pain patients i found out... ha!
    some will only wk with you so long... sigh.
    just wondering how you all got diagnoised and what had happened to where you got the fibro?

    WEll first my GP suspected that I had it so she then referred me to a Rheumy who at that timed confirmed it.

    I got Fibro from being strucked by another vehicle in 1993
    I got CFS first just shortly after the accident and then Fibro snook up on me just after that.

    love, Ann

    I wa origianlly dx. by my internist back in 2001 and my neurologist later confirmed the dx. at a routine neuro appt. I was considering using an anti depresant fo sleep and was concerned about lowering my seizure threshold.

    My Family doctor here agrees and I see a Chiropractor that is trained in myofascial trigger point release, he has stated I have many trigger points in my lower back/hip region and left shoulder/

    So Im pretty darn sure that since the symptoms have stayed the same (ups & downs) that its FM and MPS. Im really glad I'm not dealing with CFS stuff. This is difficult enought.

    Original diagnosis of CFIDS following Mono by an Oncologist.. My lymph nodes were so swollen they had thought I had cancer or aids!
    Rhumie for the fibro years later..

    A Hematologist diagnosed me with CFS. Dr. Lapp years ago added the FM. A physical therapist said that he had never seen as good a diagnoses as Dr. Lapp's trigger points.
