Why can't I get the drs to understand what is going on with me. I have kept a log of everything since last week and I put all my symptoms down on paper and all the Rhemmy could do was ask me to go next door to see the vampires again because there were 7 more tests he wanted done, this time he is checking vitamin d and calcium and RA factors....He asked ME why my liver enzyms where high........HUH you are the dr, he said they are high and that is concerning plus there are red and white cells in the urine and no infection. He either has no clue or he does but isn't saying because when I asked him what he was looking for in the blood work he skated around the question. I didn't mention Fibro because I wanted to see what he would say. He was rough with the exam and didn't care that I was already in pain so maybe he needed to slow it up a bit.... The celebrex that gp put me on isn't helping and this guy gave me a new one to go with that one and I told him I was not a medicine person. I need some relief but I am not going to start poppin pills that aren't working and why am I taking them if there isn't anything wrong. I guess I am to the point that I am giving up and I hate that feeling. I am all alone because my husband doesn't even understand. Last night he had a hard time sleeping so I rubbed his back, well I climb into bed everynight and can't sleep, who is rubbing my back.
So now I have to have a bone scan done and the office couldn't even tell me where to go for that one. The dr at one point looked right at me and said I had sleep apnea and that is why I feel this can you have sleep apnea if you don't sleep. I can't say I don't like this guy just because he didn't tell me what I wanted to hear, but there is something that just didn't sit well, seemed like he was not listening at all.
Sorry so long, I am so frustrated and tired of crying

Oddly enough, my liver levels are a bit high as well. My GP sent me to se a GI specialist about it and I told him everything that was going on with me and after lots of blood work he sent me to a Rheumatologist to see if I had lupus and it turned out that I had fibro. I've also heard a few other people on here say that their liver levels are high and they might speak up themselves. I have no idea how the liver levels are related to the fibro, or it might be a different problem that's unrelated and it's just a coincidence. I did have an ultrasound of my liver done and it showed that my liver was a bit enlarged with fatty deposits. I was basically told that I had to exercise more to control it but that's not easy with fibro. I exercise as much as I can and it's still clearly not enough.
