I have had Adult Onset Stills Disease since 2003. I was living with constant pain and coping with the pain until last year May 2013 I had an accident and the pain just got severe and unbearable. Ended up in emergency. After many tests found out that Stills was in remission and finally in October I was diagnosed with Fibro.
I have been devastated! My Rheumatologist is great for diagnosing me with this but he is always in a rush and has asked me to get a family doctor who can take the time to treat me. problem is that I do not have a family doctor. Well I had one but long story short I fired her last year summer as she was very incompetent and misdiagnosed my kids and now i realize for me too. Anyways, since then I have been looking for a family doctor however all the doctors that are taking new patients refuse to take me on when I tell them that I have Fibro and I need a dr who understands this syndrome and knows how to deal with such patients.They are fairly young doctors and all the experienced ones are not taking new patients!
So here I am. Today my Rheumatologist flatly told em that he will not see me before six months :(
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada ( To be specific I live in Pickering - Durham Region includes Pickering, Ajax, Whitby,Oshawa. Does anyone here know of any doctors that are familiar with Fibro or chronic pain and could help me. Or any resources available that I can access and get the much needed help as I am in soooooo much pain!!!
Thanks so much!
