I went to a doctors appointment yesterday. It was just a visit to my PCP to ask a few things, discuss some other medication options and get a flu shot. I left mad. Why is it that all my doctors except one (and the second opinion rheumy) downplay fibromyalgia? Why? Is it because they haven't had much experience with it or it is because they are hard-headed nincompoops?? At this point I think it is the latter. Let me explain what happened yesterday.....
We were discussing how this past month (since my surgery) has been really rough on me. I have been in a bad flare and even my pain meds are not working like they should. We also were discussing how I cannot tell if my new medicine Savella is working or not because of this flare. In all his wisdom he tells me that I am a "special"case and so much worse then anyone else with Fibro......Oh REALLY?!?!?! I think not. I know of many other fibro patients who spend their days and nights in pain. They try treatment after treatment and none seems to help as much as the doctors believe it will. So I am NOT special or worse, I am just a normal fibro patient.
Please...any and all Fibro readers out there please back me up on this. Thanks!!!
