Bad DR rant

May 01, 2019 5:54 PM

I went to the DR today for a refill on my sleeping medication. She sent in a medical student to ask me questions about my fibromyalgia. He went outside and talked to her for 10 mins about what I said. They came back in and she told me “maybe you used to have fibromyalgia or maybe you never had it. But you don’t have fibromyalgia... Correct me if I’m wrong but fibromyalgia dosent just go away on it’s own. You can go into remission(which I did 3 weeks ago, but I’m not anymore) but it dosent go away. She’s a general care practitioner and no where on here about me pages does it say she has any training with fibromyalgia or any chronic pain conditions. She says my symptoms don’t match fibromyalgia but this is only the 3rd time she has seen me and she has only heard about 2-3 of my many symptoms... she hasn’t even scratched the surface. I’m just frustrated because I spent 5 and a half years getting tests done to get a diagnosis and now she wants to poke and prod me more to rule out a diagnosis she dosent seem to know much about.
Long story short I’m not going back to her.

I hate hearing this Jessiejag! I've never heard such and would guess this doctor doesn't believe in fibromyalgia or any diagnosis that isn't "in your face" visibly diagnosable, like shingles, hiatal hernia, broken bone, heart attack etc. Find another doctor for sure, and see several if you need to in order to find who you trust & feel confident in. Hugs love & prayers you have a better weekend! 🙂❤🙏🌼
