When I first went to my GP with complaints of extreme tiredness, foggy brain, difficulty concentrating and focusing, he diagnosed me depression. Although I didn't know what was wrong with me, I knew I was not depressed. Because I was days away from a trip back home to Portugal, I decided to visit my old GP back home and get a second opinion. In Portugal I was diagnosed with FM and started on amitriptiline to help me rest and light pain killer in SOS. Because this is a condition that needs support and I don't really know what to do, I went today to my GP to get some guidance. He not only still insists that my problem is depression, but sent me to do a plasma viscosity test to prove that I don't have FM! I don't know much,but I looked it up and its used to diagnosis Polimyalgia. Did the doctor not understand what I was telling him? What do I do? xx
