Hi, pain is now all over body and much more severe than ever before. My GP has been kind enough to give me lyrica which i asked for, since rheumy thinks the problem is not fibro now, but inflammation of tendons in my hands (and that explains foot pain, knee pain, fibro fog, and a ton of other things how????). So he wants me on anti-inflammatories….uh, all blood markers showed zero inflam. Not going to happen. I told him lyrica at a higher dose worked, but can't take higher dose so wanted similar med.
No more seeing him.
Got a # for a different rheumy….however, on the clinic website and his personal page, they mention things they treat and nowhere does it say fibro. feel deflated. gonna call tomorrow and find out for sure. seems like not many around here treat fibro, very frustrating. sometimes i wonder if they are right, there's nothing wrong. i must imagine the pain, etc.
typically if docs don't list fibro on list of what they treat, is that a no-go???? not sure where to go, just need my pain, etc, treated asap.
sorry to be negative. gotta find a doc who believes in fibro. a few days with the illness and every doc would know it's real. angry.
hope u all have less pain/symptoms today and every day.
I have hope.
Lots of medical issues, lots to be thankful for.
