Just wondering 2 things.... (I know, how greedy am I ?!?)
1. Has anyone tried the "Paingone" pen...
If so... Did it work for you? Or was it just a gimmick? My husband looked at it and straight away said "it's a quack thingy" like not really helpful and just there to make them money... I have a lot of pain in the triangle part of my hand between my thumb and forefinger... It seems fibro is again trying to take away one of my few joys left, crochet... I thought maybe the pen might help there?
2. Was everyone sent to a rheumatologist after they were diagnosed? I mean they know I have some in my neck (scans before diagnosis) but a person I used to work with has rapidly ( in the last year!) had back pain and gone to operations and a diagnosis of fibromyalgia in a year! Which seems crazy because I have been trying to get help since 2007...! So she is going to me "if you had it really then they would send you to a rheumatologist straight away!! You don't have fibro I don't know what your doctor was thinking"
Has EVERYONE been to see one? Am I just not worth sending as they know I have problems anyway or..? I am so confused and upset... I thought I finally had a diagnosis, all be it not the best... And I've been telling people that the pain consultant diagnosed me with fibro...! Last time she was referring to "your fibromyalgia" so... Idk just feeling a little rattled....
Thanks in advance for any comments
