My neoroligist diagnosed me, even though I beileved I have had fibro since I was 14 years old (I'm 26 now), and she didnt even do any tests, just said, yep, you have fibro, you'll be fine. And their's only one rheumy in the area where I live, and I cant get in with them, so I dont have any choice in finding any other doctors. We have like a billion family doctors where I live, but only 3 that do pain, and one I hate, and the other 2 dont take my insurance, so finding a doctor to treat me is slim to none. So I just survive on my neoroligist that is impossible to get in with, you have to wait 3 months to see her, and she always give me that look no matter what I ask for, she didnt even wanna give me a strong dose of ibprofen or neusea meds, it took me over a year to talk her into the lyrica. So I know how you feel, it just isnt fair.
