How are these docs would think they know about fibro
0 Replies
jacquie - December 28

I am sick and tired of these websites and their doctors who think they know about fibro. Their idea of coping skills is ridiculous. I've been living with fibro since age 9 and now am 51. They haven't got a clue about the damage its done to my life (being homeless and losing everything) and every new drug that comes along (which I'm sure they get gratituties for) don't work. God forbid if I ask for vicodin, they immediately assume I'm a drug addict, and the whole experience for me is humiliation. They say try exercise or take vitamins or eat a healthy diet, none of which works. I am no longer asking for pain meds, I'm buying them on my own on the street since what they give for pain doesn't work anyway. Cymbalta the new premier drug, guess what, doesn't work for pain physical or mental depression. I find cutting myself gives me more relief from depression than "their" pills. Marijuana is the only drug I've found so far that helps with the physical pain and depression, and at my next rheumy meeting, I'm telling him so. These docs say things like 'you can help yourself with fibro'. I call the doc's symdrome, PID, physician idiotpathic disorder. There may be a few good docs in the US, but they certainly don't take Medicare. In other words, THEIR quality of life comes before their patients health and wellbeing and most of all that pertains to Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum. God forbid he should invest in one less mansion than help people who are truly sick. He's totally full of shit.
