Boy, what a day... I don't understand how some doctors keep their license and stay in practice and why in general you have to fight so hard to get the attention you need. My 19 year old daughter was diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia and Cronic Myofacial Pain about 6 months ago. Her husband is in the army and in Iraq. Three weeks ago her primary care doctor put her on Cymbalta, she see's a rheumy but her primary doctor told her that she had to put all of her healthcare through him.. Well, she started the cymbalta all he told her was that it would make her feel better. She had violent side effects, teeth chattering, fever, nausea the whole nine yards... She called me , I said, call you doctor. When she called she got the nurse on the phone and was told, "you're not taking the cymbalta for fibromyalgia, your taking it for mental issues" The doctor would not come talk to her. about 4 hours later he called her back and told her that no one can be in that much pain and I find nothing wrong with you, I thing you need to got get some psychiatric help.....That doctor better be happy I'm no where near him. She called me and I told her to call her Rheumy... She took over and was very upset with the doctor. Took her off the Cymbalta, thank God and now the Rheumy and the NEW pain management doctor are taking over care. The Rheumy was very upset over the whole thing. My daughter is so young, she just takes what she's told and try's to manage through it. NOW she know's that she can go dirrectly to her Rheumy and Pain management doctors. They told her today to be patient and they would work with medications to find the right combination. She had to call a friend this morning to help her get dressed. Please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Alysha.
OK, now I need to get back to my own deep breathing or I'm gonna be back in the same boat.
Thanks for listening.
