Misdiagnosed?

Dec 22, 2016 1:26 AM

I have been battling this pain for months. My doctor said potentially it's stress or depression related. I don't see how burning,crawling, literally all over pain feels are depressive/stress related. The placement of the pain doesn't make sense either. And the meds for these things don't work either.. Has anyone else been told this? How can I get my doc to gravitate towards Fibro? Tired of hurting and having no relief, feeling not believed :/

Yes but I have one good thing that is and is an idea try getting a TENS unit they are a lifesaver and they work like a charm and I would suggest you talk to your doctor about getting one! It works on my pain and mine is so excruciating you'd like to commit yourself to a state hospital and it works best for that kind of pain! Talk to your doctor about getting a TENS unit ASAP!!!💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪

And yes I've been told that my pain cannot be treated and it is depressing and stressful like crazy nobody should go there well... Fly together like birds of a feather! We're in the same boat!

Perhaps start reseaching on ur end , print things write down what ur going thru seems tedis but i just sent 12 pages of my personal diary journal dates times what im feeling going thru... Also researching what u may think u have thats how i found out about fibro, my sister has it she and others kept saying im telling u look into fibro... So i did i gotten to point my doc ask why i need them? That they neverseen any body so prepared in there life.. Yea well i know my body i know how i am feeling i know what works and thats that. Suggest it but read up check symptoms etc bring ur proof with that you want to be looked over again for what ever it is... Hugz hope u figure it out

I agree with Mizz, gotta take things into your own hands when the doc just won't listen. Know one knows your body better then you. I had to get several people to verify my fibro before anyone would take it serious. And fibro can be different for everyone, along with the meds that actually work for u. It's a lot of trial and error but don't give up and be strong.
