Finding a doctor is time consuming, frustrating and also can be disappointing once you get there. I went to an internist, a neuro, rhuemy, a chiropractor and even a gyno before a reluctant dx of fibro....over the course of four or five years. Back when I was having my worst symptoms there was no such thing as fibro and a rheumy finally dx'd me with myofascial pain/fibrotitis (which was the old term for fibromyalgia). Of course I got plenty of eye rolling, but everything else had been ruled out after a billizion tests. My new rheumy believes in it, yet has no clue about the side effects of the drugs he prescribes. It can be such an expensive and grueling process...but hang in there and I hope you get some answers from your new doc.
