2 out of 3 diagnosis for fibro???
2 Replies
saundra - May 27

I have been to 3 rheumatologists in 3 yrs. They keep moving out of my home state of Maine. Anyway, the first two drs. diagnosed fibro, yesterday the 3rd dr sd I don't have fibro I have nerve damage from an accident 5 years ago. I am so confused now. I have been having chest pain since Oct. 08 and my drs had said it was from the fibro. I have had an EKG and it was fine. And they firmly believe it is not my heart.
Now, the new dr says it is not fibro, it is nerve damage. Every time I go to one of these specialists they all examine me differently. One pushed harder on the tender points; one barely touched the tender points and the last one didn't even touch them at all. How do I know who is right? Has anyone else had this type of situation? Thank you

hello saundra

Another doctor who knows nothing about fibro, that would be your last one. How the hell can he say you don't have it, if he didn't even give you a physical exam, and didn't even touch the tender points. Oh I hate those doctors!!!!

Well in your case, I would seek another opinion, agree to diagree and get this last doctor to send you to another specialist for a fourth opinion.

I'd tend to believe that two out of three diagnostics, ain't bad opinion. I wish all of us would not have fibro, but guess what, it just isn't so!!

saundra,

Good old EKG, cardiac arrythmia.

What you are experiencing with chest pain, is not your heart, is commonly due to latent TrPs in the pectoralis and sternalist muscles.

Doorway stretches help these TrPs.
