I have been a member of the forum for a while now, but this is my first post.
I was diagnosed with a chronic pain disorder, PTSD, and depression 2 years ago as a result of a car accident. About a year ago I went to my GP and asked him if I had fibro, as I had the full body pain, chronic fatigue, stiffness etc, and asked him if he would refer me to a Rheumatologist. He said he didn't need to as he could check the pressure points, which he did, and said, yes you have fibro. However he didn't put this on my notes.
In my long winded way, what I am asking your advice is who would actually diagnose Fibro ? I am thinking about going back to see a different GP and asking them to refer me to a Rheumatologist. Do you think that would be the correct way forward ?
Any advice would be gratefully received xxx
