Convincing the Doctor I have Fibromyalgia?
0 Replies
loiuse - September 21

Ok,, I have had symptoms for almost 10 years. My sis has MS and they ruled that out... After this long I know they are getting worse, and each year I note new symptoms. The fatigue is far worse now and the weakness and headaches and now I have muscle spasms and my mental aptitude is worrisome. I feel like a crazy person I have so many symptoms I am embrassed to address these with the doctors. Each doctor wants a 30 second breakdown of 10 years worth of symptoms! They don't seem to communicate. All in all, they all tell me MIGRAINES. When do migraines cause SO MANY symptoms? I have migraines, mentrual problems, the muscle weakness, fatigue, dental problems, eyesight problems, memory and cognitive problems, circulatory problems, high blood pressure, swelling, depression (mostly cause since I can't get a diagnosis past migraines), chronic sinusitis, and many other symptoms. I want my doctor to just say I have this so I can move on. I know I have fibromyalgia. It just makes sense with all the symptoms I have. But he looks at the blood tests, mri's, gi's, and other tests and sees very little. They found minor things wrong with the brain and liver. I have the blood pressure and circulatory problems including Raynauds, I have chronic fatigue, and they did find a small cyst on my liver. But overall I seem healthy on paper. I just can't get them to ok this self diagnosis. What should I say to my doctors???? I have done SO MUCH research and finally come to this.... but proving it is difficult!!!!!
