- DX FIBRO
My name is Nicole and this is the first time I'm posting on here. I was diagnosed two days ago by a rhumetologist. My pcp has been an NP at a local clinic. The clinic serves Native Americans as well as low income families and because I've been unable to work for about a year due to chronic pain and nausea and vomiting. The rhumetologist I saw really made me feel awful due to coming from a low income clinic, specifically telling me (before introducing himself even) that he was doing them a favor seeing their patients since we don't bring in much money. He said many offensive things including that I "clearly have mental problems" and that I have fibromyalgia and patients with fibromyalgia waste so much of his time. Needless to say I left, filed a complaint and will not be returning. He gave me little information but did tell me that my diet should not factor into fibromyalgia and that if I was feeling pain and nausea it was anxiety. I have noticed that my body reacts to foods though. I have been hospitalized because of the pain in my stomach after eating certain foods. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar dietary issues or if my pain really is all in my head. I plan to see another rhumetologist but I need some time to recover from the traumatic visit I just had.
