That is a hard one. My hubby does not really believe, he says things like "you are getting older" or "yea, I hurt too". When it gets real bad and I am on the couch with the TV down low he ultimately gives in because I am not getting up for nothing.
A lot of times I don't say anything and it kills me that people can't see the pain in my eyes or the squinched up forehead while I try to see straight...............I normally blame a migraine, that people understand....ppfftt..........go figure.
I hope once you get a diagnosis they will see things differently
