I know I have fibro, I've had it for nearly two years but after over a year of tests my GP and my Rhuematoid consultant won't say I have. All I get is it's a very foggy area - they are obviously in my world - We have to rule out everything else first. We've now ruled out everything else. My ESR levels are high, you don't get that with fibro, NO but you do if you have arthritis, which I have in my neck, shoulders and back. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis in my hips and plantar fasciitis. So one of those must be giving me brain fog, pains all over my body, flu like symptoms if I dare to walk the dog or go to the supermarket. Heaven forbid I do both in one day, because then I am really ill. I took a score sheet to my consultant to show the symptoms and I scored very high, he didn't even look at it and just said' I could say half my patients have that, you might but there is no cure!!! Come back in two months and we will see how you are then?; The same as I was four months ago, six months ago and worse than I was a year ago. I got my app through, it's for March, I saw him in Oct, TWO MONTHS??? I'm just being fobbed off, they think because I'm sixty next year I'm not worth worrying about. I'm desperate for help but no one hears me. I've done test after test on the internet, in most cases they say I have severe fibro, but who will back that up, if no one is listening. Anyone any idea what I should do?
