Hi Enochroot and welcome. Like Sherrine and Sera said you have to take responsibility for your own health to a degree. I also have complete blood work up on regular bases. I do have auto-immune disorder so I see my rheumy once a year to keep an eye out for any other auto-immune problems. I keep a list of things, as they come up, to ask my docs.
I think in the beginning I had a lot of those 'what if' questions. Part of it was wishful thinking that maybe I had something that I could take pills for and it would go away. The rest is the fact that there is no blood test that shows fibro.
This forum has been a godsend cause I can ask any question about a new symptom and see if others with fibro have it.
luv and hugs
