Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, scoliosis, back problems, hypothyroidism.
Upbeat, I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems with your doctor. Fibromyalgia patients can suffer from many different types of pain, and what helps some of us does not always help others. It is a shame that many members of the medical community still do not have a good understanding of this. I cannot take the narcotic pain relievers myself, as I have gotten ill each time that I have tried to take them. However, there have been many times with this illness that I have wished that I could. I hope that your doctor has a change of heart, and that you are able to manage your pain until your next visit.
