Hi, Nooneknows. Welcome to the forum. This is a great place for support! Let me direct you to "Fibro 101," the first thread on the list. It's chock-full of really helpful information.
Sorry for the pain and all the rest...not fun. As far as I know, Fibro presents pretty much the same in males and females....what you're describing sounds all too familiar (except that instead of acid reflux, I have IBS.)
I hope your doctor will listen to you, now that you've been forced to see "see how things go"...good grief! That would be very difficult for me.
I hope you'll keep posting, so we can get to know you. We really like helping eachother out. It's nice to have a place to go to when the outside world just doesn't get it...which is often
