Is it just me or have any of you had massive problems trying to get a clear diagnosis of fibro? 7 months on from a road accident that has brought on many fibro, symptoms had been identified by a physio from my local hospital, but he wouldn't commit it to paper as he said a rheumatologist has to make diagnosis (how?) and referred me to a pain clinic that just want to dose me up with every pain killer they can think of but don't listen when I say I am sleeping all day but awake all night cos of the meds!
After making a complaint as I was going to have to wait a year for a rheumatology appointment. I saw the Dr who xrayed my spine showing crushed vertebrae, I asked him about FMS and he referred to it like a mild headache? My GP won't deal with it and keeps passing it all over to the hospital, who if there is no damage to nerves/discs on MRi, they are done with me. Is this right??
Since the accident, I have chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, weak limbs, agonising all over body pain with no day off! No energy whatsoever, I am forgetting stuff all the time and what I have even been saying, the list goes on but the hospital DR made it sound like a made up disease. So confused and dont know what to do now? xxx
