ok so i started an account here a while back but since ive never been diagnosed and my pain dr doesnt believe many people have True fibro but thinks its more myofascial (sp) pain so i figured i didnt belong. Well as of late my shoulders have been especially painful to the point everything ive tried didnt work she gave me a shoulder xray it was fine. She had me go in today and asked me where it was that hurt and preceeded to check my neck for a slipped disk. Well when she pushed on my chest i flinched back like ive never done before (and i honestly thought Everyone felt that pain when it was pushed on) and as i did that she took a step back and said i think you have fibro. She then checked the other tender points and continued to say she thinks i have fibro. I know that since she doesnt believe in many true fibro pts she wouldnt just say it if she didnt truly think it and when she said it i almost cried! told my she wanted me in pool therapy 3xs a week for THE RESST OF MY LIFE those words were hard to accept! Since my appt and her pushing on the spots im in a tremendous amount of pain! on top of it i have gastroparesis so it makes it difficult to do pt sometimes cus im too nausepus and the reglan for gastroparesis i cant take cus of side effects. she also put me on lyrica and i have mental issues as well so im scared about the suicidal ideation risk! Sry i just needed to vent i guess :(

I am sorry about your pain.  Lyrica worked good for me, I had to go off of it because insurance quit paying for it.  I hope you start feeling better soon.  The whole 'rest of your life' thing really stinks. Julie
