This is hard to explain.thing is I can't remember a day without pain even as a youngster and I'm 26 now. I have all the symptoms of fibromylagia (spelling?) But have never gotten any treatment . My only memories of talking to parents about it lead-to dismissal and disbelief and same with doctors . One told me to touch toes ...nothing wrong with you. The other insisted I was pregnant ! Lost most family and friends because they don't believe me and I get upset and frustrated trying to make them believe. Pain every day makes me depressed and inactive but fear OT not being believed has prevented me not seeking medical attention . Last 6 months been getting worse and my partner said he'd leave if I didn't get help. Been doctors twice since he said that but bottled out ND spoke about back pain. Feel like a coward . Got another appointment Tuesday and I'm terrified. What can I do ?
