Yep!  Although he is the top in the Cardio field, he is a firm believer that FM is not a true diagnosis.  He believes if lab results, etc are abnormal, it's because there is something WRONG!  So, he's unhappy with my current course of treatment, feels I'm definitely headed down the wrong road and is referring me over to a new family doc and then to an infectious disease doc.  Hmmmm! 
 
I don't know what to think about all this.  On one hand I do believe what he feels about abnormal test results is right but, at the same time, the docs I have seen have run just about every test possible (at least I think so).  Anywho, I guess it's just one more hoop I have to jump thru.
 
And so another journey begins!

Hopefully this new journey will solve the puzzle. I also think it a good idea to redo labs and
try to get an answer for any abnormal testing. It is possible that you do have fibro along
with something else, only time and testing will tell. Good luck to you!
