Welcome to the forum.
Have you actually been diagnosed with Fibro?? Or do you suspect that you have it?? I don't know exactly what to tell you when it comes to finding a doctor that takes your insurance, but I would check with your local hospital and your insurance provider for a list that might have another doc. that you could see.
Be sure to check out Fibro 101 .. the second thread on the forum. Its jam packed with lots of usful information that can help you. Also look for a thread that was started by Sherrine called Welcome Newbies. She has lots of advice on there.
I hope you can find some answers. I know you'll find support on this forum. Everyone here has helped me a lot and I consider them as family. We really care about each other here and are always willing to help as much as we can.
Aww.. Hara, I know what it's like to get a bunch of bad news all at once. You have my total understanding and support with that.
As for the sleep study and CPAP. My husband had it done about 2 years ago and it's made a huge difference in his quality of life (not to mention mine.. at least I don't have to worry about him all night long, like I used to) After his study we found out that he was only breathing half of the night. He never got to REM sleep and he was literally choaking at least 1/4 of the night. His snoring was AWFUL, it was like trying to sleep on a runway at JFK airport!! LOL.. No wonder nobody was getting any sleep at our house!!
I'm REALLY happy that your doctor is sending you to a rheumy!!! That's GREAT news. I didn't know that in your earlier post. Rheumetologists have a much better handle on FMS than alot of doctors. If my doc. wasn't an accupunturist as well as a GP, I would have insisted on being sent to a rheumy. But my doc. is great and I'm really happy with him. I hope you'll get more answers from the rheumy. A lot of our members see them and are very happy with them.
Welp, I'd better take a break, take care and keep posting. I'm sure some other members will be along sometime soon and welcome you, too.
Take care and have a good night,
