Hi there, I am in the middle of a bad flare up of Fibro. I went to my doctor and described my symptoms, stating I was suffering severe fatigue and having trouble walking at all. I told the doctor that my medication of paracetamol, naproxen and Tramadol is not working for me. The doctor stated that stronger drugs would make fatigue worse. I got signed off work for a week. I keep asking my doctor for another referral to a specialist at a different hospital as I'm not satisfied that I just have Fibro. I have not had any X-rays, scans e.g. MRI and CT scans. In my opinion there have not been enough tests to rule out other conditions. I am even considering paying for a private consultation as I believed I have been fobbed off with Fibro! How do I get my doctor to see my point of view? Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.xxxxxx
