I know the internet is not the best place for getting information and we can end up with every illness known to man but reading symptoms, but I have all the classic symptoms of fibro, sore places, arthritis in many joints, raynauds syndrome, muscle pain, etc etc, When I go to see my doctor, although I try and tell them all the symptoms, they say they can only deal with one problem at a consultation, so all the symptoms are not getting tied up. Because I have had depression in the past (reactive after a few family tragedies coming all at once) they now decide that my problem is always depression when I know it is not, I am getting frustrated because I can't get anyone to listen to me. all they seem to do is want me to take antidepressants, when I say what is getting me down is all this pain and not knowing what is going on. I have never been refered on to anyone for the arthritis so seem to be hitting a brick wall all the time. Can you tell me how or who gave you the diagnosis and should I ask to be referred to a specialist? Many thanks!
