Hello. I was unofficially diagnosed with fibro 11 years ago, but at that time there was a lot of controversy about it and not recognized my the medical community in general so my doctor at the time said there was no point in putting it my records as it was more likely to affect my insurance rates than to me any good. I got the official diagnosis about three years ago. I had a good doctor at first, but she moved out of the state and the doctor she passed me on to is the kind that believes exercising should fix it all, but as I'm sure you know, it's hard to exercise when your whole body hurts and the exercise only makes it worse. So...I'm in search of a new doctor who will take Medicaid and some support from people who understand.
