I would take it as yes he is acknowledging it even though he doesn't seem to think it's a chronic condition. Change of surgery seems a very positive thing to do. Have you looked to see if there is a support group in your area, reason I ask is that the members may be able to point you in the direction of any good fibro docs, or ring your local pct. On the front page of the forum on the left hand side of the page is a link for support groups which have telephone numbers you could ring to get some info :hugs: :hugs:

Hi
Sorry to hear you are having a rough time.
I think you should change your doctors as having one that understands fibro makes a big difference.
If you cant change surgeries then print some info off on fibro and take it with you to show your GP, with any luck he will have a read through it. :goodluck1: :flowers:

Sorry to hear about your doc. The NHS has a web page on fibro so GP`s should start to be more believing. Your library might have a printer to save you writing everything down. :hugs:
