it is so hard to get doctors to understand, I got fibro after a blow to the head though nothing showed on the scans. I suggest that you make a list of your probs including sleep and try get them addressed. especially the sleep. I am on Lyrica 150 morn and another 150 night. Ask to see a rhuematogist and secondly pain management. When my rhuematologist diagnosed fibro he gave me an opioid as nothing else worked for the pain. unfortunaltely it takes a while to get anywhere but I am 70% better now but it took two years. See a rhuematologist and say you were dianosed with fibro, Ask doc for something for pain and sleep and if he doesnt help see another but def get referal to rheumy. regards sue. luck
Thank you very much for the info. I tried to call the hospital to see if they had a rhuematologist, but they did not seem to understand so I may have to get a translator to help me. It is difficult enough to deal with this let alone try to explain it to a foreign doctor who kind of understands what you say. I have gone through many "misunderstandings" with the doctors here. Hopefully soon I will be able to get to the right doctor and get things headed in the right direction. I am glad to hear you are getting better. That is good news to hear. thanks again and have a nice day.
