Went to doctor with theory that I had picked up that fibro mimics cervical stenosis. I had seen articles from medical trials that suggest this, so put it forward to her.
She tested my upper body strength which was ok, but wasn't interested when I asked her about my latest symptom - dropping things. She was convinced that there "wasn't anything neurological involved" (isn't fibro supposed to be partly neurological??).
So I then asked her about the weakness I have had down one side of my body from waist down after trapping a nerve around 3 years ago. I wan'ted to know if there was anything I could do to strengthen my walk, as I now have a more developed leg on the other side and find hills a struggle, dispite regular chiropracty and deep tissue massage. She said "I'm not worried about it" (????). Personally I don't want to hear that as it is ME who is worried about it. I left feeling that she didn't care two hoots and still must think that Fibro is purly rheumatoid.
Do I need a second opinion, or am I really off the mark here? Below are links to some of the articles I read about Fibro and stenosis link.
