Why is every symptom put down to Fibromyalgia !

Every time I have had an ailment it seems to have been put down to Fibro,until xrays, dexa scans or other tests have proved other conditions.I have was told on Monday,we are now lokking at cancer.To say I was gogsmacked is an understatement.Whatever happened to bedside manners and compassion.Yes we have to be informed but there are better and more humane ways of giving this kind of info.Having more tests next Friday.Fingers crossed it gets sorted,for my husband and families sake.

  • So sorry sweetheart!!! What symptom were you having that the doctor put of to Fibromyalgia? Hope you get good news!!!

  • I was referring to past consultations.I have been diagnosed with other conditions over the years.

  • Sparky, so sorry to hear you have been given that diagnosis.

    I know what you mean about most complaints bring put down to Fibro. I know it seems to have So many "tentacles" but it would be nice to have drs treat a new problem as a problem and not just brush it off as another symptom of Fibro.

    This week will not be an easy one for you waiting for more tests. Xo
