I had my appointment with my GP today and showed him my list of symptoms and the check off list. I told him whether it was fibro or something else that I was 37 years old and should not feel this dang tired all the time and hurt all the time. He said well I will be honest with you I don't know anything about fibro so I am going to send you to a rheumetologist. I had asked the nurse before the doctor came in if the doc believed in fibro. She said well I don't know about him but I sure don't. It pissed me off so bad. I asked the doctor and he said that he felt it was a catch all, when nothing else could be found. But either way, maybe I will get somewhere with the other doc.
My question is, what all is involved in the first visit with the rheumotologist? I have severe white coat syndrome and I am a little scared. Will I have to get MRI and a Cat Scan? Those 2 things petrify me.
Oh and I am new here. I have posted one other time just asking if you all thought this was fibro.
