Hello everyone. I went to my new doctor today. He is so wonderful. He is so understand, knowledgeable, and he really listens, which is a big deal. He is doing all that he can to make dealing with my fibro easier. He upped my Lyrica, gave me stronger pain meds, gave me a new muscle relaxer, and also a med for tension headaches. He also wrote a note so that I can have a pet. I was talking to him about how I had read a lot of articles on how research shows that people with chronic illnesses who have pets do better than some of those without them. So he wrote that he recommended I have a cat for companionship and medical necessity. I thought it was really cool of him. My old doctor wouldn't do that. I am so thankful to have this new doctor. It's important to have a doctor who not only believes in this illness, but is knowledegable and willing to do anything he/she can to help.

Tiki that is fabulous!  I want your dr. too!!  No mine is very great, my rheumy is.  I am going to call him tomorrow and see if there is any way he will put me on Cymbalta.  Do you take that?
