Hi all! I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for well over 20 years. To say I have good days and bad days is an understatement. I am 68, a woman, and am very new to online forums. Lately I have struggled just to find a good doctor that listens and tries to understand my biggest challenge that comes with Fibro…insomnia. Now I have always loved to sleep! But getting the restful, deep, healing sleep has eluded me for years and it’s getting worse. I can’t fall asleep without taking something, can’t stay asleep and when I finally do, when I wake up, I feel more exhausted than before I fell asleep. I’m tired ALL THE TIME! So I did research and found a great book written by a doctor that actually has Fibro. It’s called The FibroManual. Now the first thing she says to do is work on the insomnia issue. And find a good doctor who will work with you. Easy right? Wrong! My medical group will not refer me to a rheumatologist. They said Fibro isn’t an inflammatory disease so they won’t ref me. My internist today said in a nutshell, you will always have this disease and you just need to deal with it. So I am here to ask you all if this is what you have experienced? Are rheumatologists seeing you all for Fibro? I feel so defeated. I just want to find a doctor who cares enough to work with me to find the right treatment for me. So that I can wake up and have enough energy to play with my grandson. Thank you for any advice you care to share. BTW, I am currently taking Amitryptoline (sp?) at bedtime and zzzzQuil gummies (non-drug). The internist prescribed the Amitryptoline and doesn’t seem to care that it’s not really working.
