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. anyway, just wondering how you all got diagnoised and what had happened to where you got the fibro?
