Hello- just been diagnosed

Postby wanda » Mon Jan 18, 2010 4:37 pm

HI all

I too have just come back from appointment at Rheumatoligst. He noted my GP thought i had fibro, he asked some questions and did pressure points. I explained what problems I have been having and wished i had taken someone with me for moral support. This is the second time I have seen a specialist that has a student sitting in with them and seems to add to the patronising behaviour.Anyway he said he thought it was what is called Fibromyalgia- non specific symptons , he said to student. He then said he would write to GP to confirm dx with a suggestion of more pills and that i was discharged. Now i know from reading some of your emails why you just want to cry. Which is what i have done several times since i got back to work.

I had taken diary and list of all symptons ranging from rash-arthritic pain, medicinal intolerances, ear and balance problems, rigidity of hands, wrists, elbow, numbness of limbs, vibrations like a mobile in my pocket, sleep problems, adrenalin rushes that almost make me faint. falling over, vision problems etc etc.

Non specific symptons. I wander if he would think that when your lying in bed thinking your about to have a stroke, on you own with a four year old and your hands are so stiff you cant uncurl your fingers and they are blue.

Im going to go back to GP and ask if she thinks i have fibro to please send me to someone who deals with Fibro patients. This doctor is obviously of the mindset that there really is no such thing . I am furious and confused. Now I am thinking it must be me

Hi wanda, sorry to hear you had such a horrid experience! Certainly does sound patronising! Fingers crossed that the GP can get you a better referral. :hugs:
