- DX FIBRO
So I just recently moved to a different city and I needed to find a new PCP. Unfortunately, do to crappy circumstances, I haven't had a doctor for months now and I haven't had any kind of medication other than over the counter crap which doesn't really help with anything other the severe osteoarthritis in my knee and ankle. So I finally got an appointment and I was finally feeling a little optimistic that I would finally be getting some help again. As soon as I told her about being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, She went into a whole shpeal about now there's been new methods lately for treating fibro. She then proceeds to tell me about how depression can create physical symptoms and it's crazy what the brain can do. She didn't even do any kind of blood work or any other kind of tests. All she did was ask me to fill out a few mood and mental questionnaires and write me a script for Cymbalta and give me a list of psychiatrists to possibly visit. She didn't even wanna schedule me for a follow-up. It's just so beyond frustrating having to find a new doctor only to be dismissed as crazy because you hurt constantly. I was so pissed off I just sat in the car and screamed afterwards. I don't really have anyone who understands how this feels that I can talk to and it's just really starting to get bad again.
