Hi, Yvette, and welcome! Boy, don't you hate it when doctors tell you it's all in your head? I've often wondered if a man with undiagnosed fibro went to these doctor and if the doctors would tell them it's all in their head, too! I highly doubt that. But, as you have found out, there are still doctors out there in the Dark Ages when it comes to fibromyalgia. Fibro is recognized by the American Medical Association, the American College of Rheumatology, the National Institutes of Health, and the World Health Organization, just to name a few. I figure if a doctor doesn't believe in the existence of fibro then they are not on the cutting edge of medicine and I don't want to trust my body to them.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. The very first links explain what doctors are thinking is causing fibro. Other good starting links are called Symptoms and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. You just might see yourself there. All of Fibro 101 is good so do check it out.
Also, don't forget to join our virtual party we are having Friday. There is a thread called "It's Party Time" so check it out and join in. We always have fun with the virtual parties.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
