I have been in really bad pain in my neck/shoulders, hips/lower back and knees for almost a year now. I went to see a great doctor at my GP practice about 6 months ago who instantly said it sounds like fibromyalgia, but I needed to have some tests done to rule out other conditions.
They all came back clear but I've been struggling to get an appointment with that doctor. I've had appointments with 2 doctors since who have no interest in investigating fibromyalgia and one even sent me home with a youtube video to show me some stretches I'd already been doing, and that was all!
I have another appointment with a new doctor to the surgery later on this week. I'm hoping they take my seriously because I'm really struggling with the pain and living my life with it. I'm only 19 but sometimes I feel like I'm 90, especially going upstairs.
I've contemplated changing GPs but I don't know how long the process is, or if any of the doctors there will take me seriously either.
If anyone had any advice as to getting a diagnosis I would really appreciate it. x
