Statgeek it's a kick in the gut to us when someone writes those things. My evil little mind goes to work and I wish for them to know what it is like living in a fibro body.
Yes, call and ask the results of your test. One thing I have learned with age is you have to take control of your own health. Ask the doc what they are testing for and why. The things that should be ruled out before you get a dx of fibro is lupus, MS and RA. Since my pain level wasn't that bad in the beginning and fatigue was my worse complaint I had stress test on heart and about everything else before the first bad flare of fibro raised it's ugly head. That made it real easy for my doc to make a dx finally.
If your not comfortable with your doc and he/she is not explaining what they are doing to get to the root of your problem than maybe you need to find another one. There has to be communication between doc and patient and I for one will not be talked down to by a doc, not told what they are doing and why and treated like they are so superior in intelligence that I wouldn't understand it anyway. I may not know all their big words but I can sure look it up on the internet.
I hope you get answers soon.
luv and hugs
