I have had great medical doctors who have diagnosed & have been treating my FMS for 25 years. Included in my health care team is my therapist & unfortunately I am having trouble with him now. He started saying in this past year that ALL of my physical health conditions are the result of a few years of abuse over 30 years ago. I have disagreed with him on this many times, but he keeps his own opinion. It doesn't seem to matter to him that I had some of these health conditions prior to the abuse, or that I was in an accident which left me with chronic back & neck pain & periodic paralysis, or that I have successfully overcome the abuse years ago.
I know of a few people who have FMS & had a very traumatic past, but I also know of some who have FMS & haven't had a traumatic past. I'm ready to give my therapist a kick in his pants. I've always said I would never stay with a doctor who said it was all in my head. I guess it's about time to leave this one. With what I have learned about FMS & with new info being released now, like FMS being a neuro-immune disorder & other things, I just don't understand why some in the health field refuse to accept FMS as a disease in itself, that it isn't a psychological disorder.
So, I would like to know about some of you out there - Have any of you had trauma in your life along with FMS? Are any of you fighting therapists who insist your health is due to traumatic events?
