Help

Hi all. Saw my doctor yesterday I thought he was ok. Fibromyalgia to him means I do not know what is wrong with you. Have had pains most places. Legs are hurting all the time use co codomel and volterol which helps. I hurt my back so I went to osteopath she thought pain could be coming from my back and mentioned getting a X-ray. Doctors said they will not do it will have to go private and pay. Not Hurd of this. He did not offer an alternative. I have had to go private before. I can not afford this. I came out so low then angry. Why do they not understand the pain we go through. Just venting to you lovely lot

unfortunately, gp's seem to be reluctant to refer for xrays etc unless it is completely essential. back pain especially often does not show up as any damage on x-rays - and this is possibly why your gp has said no.

Drs can't do much for fibro. I always feel like that after. Desperate really. Shouldn't get my hopes up hey?
