I have been refered to a rhumatologist as my Dr believes i have Fibromyalgia.
I have read online that many Rhumatologists have no interest in dealing with Fibro patients and feel that pain clinics or neurologists are more appropriate for patients 'like me'.
I am now wandering why i have been refered to a rhumatologist, what exactly he/she wil do and how annoyed they will be if i am diagnosed with fibromyalgia!! lol!
But seriously reading such negative info about referals to rhumey's and Fibro patients has put me off going and im quite worried about the app now.
I would be really grateful if any of you would mind sharing your experiences regarding rhumatologists/referals as i feel really unsure and alone if im honest dealing with all this. I have tried my best to convince myself that it cant be real as all my bloods were normal (for inflammation) but the same 2-3 week out of every month my shoulders and hips burn, ache wake me constatly when i try to sleep, i can hardly dress in the morning cos im so sore and stiff work , kids everything is made harder as a result, even trying to sit comfy in the evening and rest in one position!! I cant escape it nor do i talk to anyone cos i feel like a moaning hypochondriac. I cant win and now i feel like im going to be scolded at by a rhumatologist....agh! Perhaps its just me.
Please let me know good/or bad how you got on .
Thank you for reading
