I posted earlier in the week about how I hadn't been given a
diagnosis yet and about having an appointment today with a
physiatrist. The appointment went well and he did dx me with
fibro. He said I probably have cfs also but he doesn't deal with
that sooooo I still have to find someone for that now too. My
family Dr isn't knowledgeable enough about it.
He wants me to start taking Savella again. I had to stop it last
time after 3 wks because it made me so nauseous and dizzy.
He said I was probably titrated up too quickly. He's starting me
off much slower this time.
He is not big on pain meds-narcotics and opiates. That's fine with
me. I'd rather not take them if I don't have to.
I have to go back to see him in a month.
Here's an interesting tidbit: I showed him a list of my symptoms
and he said it looked liked I'd gotten it off of a fibro list. I said I
did it to help me remember. He said that probably explains why
no Dr ever diagnosed me. I asked him did it mean they thought I
was faking? He said most likely, yes. :O
So by being honest, and trying to include everything it looked
bad for me. I always read how people should bring a list to the
Dr's with them. I never knew it was working against me.
But anyway, thank you all for your support throughout this long
and frustrating ordeal. Thanks for giving me hope and helping me
not to feel so alone.
Hope you all have a good day.
