Hello, I have had Chronic Pain for 10+ years located in my stomach. In the past year or so, I have had a couple more areas crop up. It has been a very frustrating journey as doctor's treat the symptoms but if they can't find a cause then they give up. i contacted a naturopath 3 years ago. She was the first medical professional that looked at my whole body and finally came up with a diagnosis, Myofacial Pain Disease. Finally, a diagnosis then my primary care doctor that I had for 24 years retired and now I am faced with a new doctor who wants to "fix" me, which I told her I was okay with the diagnosis and didn't expect her to fix me. One of the reasons I join this site was the ability to chart my pain everyday and be able to show her so maybe she will get a better picture of what I go through.

Welcome! I have MPD on my list of possible diagnoses. It doesn't seem very well known and it is very very hard to find doctors who can accurately diagnose and treat. I have yet to find one. Take care!
