For a little over a year I have been experiencing pain throughout my body. I have had migraines and such for several years. I went to speak with my doctor about it. She totally blew me off for an entire year. She said I am probably just stressed and such. But I go to a family practice center that the doctors switch out each year.
I just got a new doctor who looked at me with fresh eyes. This new doc did several blood tests and such, trying to find the problem. She informed me that my former doc never made so much as a single note on the pain I have been having, which now is an everyday constant without relief.
When I first complained it was intermittent. Well, today, I received my diagnoses: Fibromyalgia.
Though there is no cure, I can now work on ways to relieve pain instead of just living with it and not being believed. And I want to speak out. We need to be taken seriously. Stop the insurance companies from determining health care, and get these doctor’s heads out of the clouds and take us seriously
