Hi there EK!!
I hear ya.. I was never dx'd as bi-polar but.. when I was a teenager/young adult my dad would get on my case about being so happy one minute and being so down the next. I think I could have had fibro most of my life. I don't think I'm bi-polar. But I do think that we all have a tendency to feel really rotten one day and feel a lot better the next. And when you're in the kind of pain and confusion that we suffer from you could easily be misdiagnosised as being bi-polar.
I can't answer the question honestly but it wouldn't surprise me if you were misdiagnosised as bi-polar when you had fibro all along. One thing I know doctors are very good at... and that's misdiagnosising a lot of illnesses. I see it all the time with other people so it wouldn't surprise me if they messed up ours too.
Yes... please let us know what the doc. says. I'll be interested in what he/she has to say.
Take care & gentle hugs,
