... Thanks so much for all the valuable information. I seriously doubt my Dr. will prescribe a stronger pain med. It angers me that it's nearly impossible for chronic pain sufferers such as you and me have a difficult time getting relief, simply because there are sick individuals out there who have nothing better to do with their time than to attempt getting a "high" off...

... dramagurl, Hello and Welcome! :wave: You can have a very full life with Fibro. My mom has Fibro too and she did home-day-care for years, and that is a lot of hard work... running after 2 year olds for 10 hours a day is tough for someone with Fibro, but my mom did it for a very long time.... She is now and office person and she works 50-60 hours a week. Her... (8 replies)

... Wittesea, Thanks for your reply. I pretty much agree with the doctor on this one. It's my sister who doesn't. In the past year I have been tested for everything, rhuem, lupus, thyroid, the tick disease, I have had x Rays and MRI's. For awhile I thought maybe it was nothing, that I was over what ever it was and then out of no where I am having serious pain and spasm again. I... (7 replies)

... Hello and Welcome! :wave: You seem a bit unsure of your diagnosis... do you think that the doctor was right when he diagnosed Fibro? There are some doctors that don't understand Fibro very well, so they use it as a "waste basket" diagnosis... in other words, they don't know what it really wrong with you, it doesn't seem serious to them, so they slap a Fibromyalgia...

... Hello and Welcome! :wave: Your first appointment with a Rheumatologist will most likely include the following- *** a full history- The doctor (or nurse) will ask you a lot of questions about your own health history as well as the history of family members. They will also probably ask you about your symptoms. If you tend to be forgetful (like me) it would help to... (16 replies)
