Symptom of fibromyalgia?
1 Replies
Shorty - February 12

I do have fibromyalgia. I'm wondering if the following is happening because of this illness. It happens in the fall, winter, or
spring in the evening maybe an hour or so after eating a meal. I become cold and sleepy. I get colder and colder and shiver
uncontrollably. I have my husband throw
three blankets over me, and I shiver and go to sleep for about three hours. I am ok after awakening. This is periodic. Frequency varies.

Did you know your insurance company dictates the tests you get and the answers your doctor dismisses as Fibromyalgia? I've been going through this crap now for over 7 years, and continue to worsen. Lung disease, thyroid disease, nodules, fevers, liver and kidney disease, and the list goes on... The fact that doctors don't even examine or even touch me anymore and keep dismissing my problems as "fibromyalgia" made me realize that there is a conspiracy going on. Go do an internet search on "Fibromyala dismissive" and read up on the controversy. Here's what I've had to do in order to have a physician finally admit that fibromyalgia is merely passive to satisfy the patient and keep the insurance company from paying to allow a correct diagnosis and treat you effetively. You really need to research your symptoms thoroughly. Print off the facts you find, ask for specific testing and most important of all...BRING A WITNESS TO YOUR DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS. You must drill your doctor with your witness present why they don't test for other possibilities based on the facts. Be sure and request copies of your tests so you have the information you need to keep researching the possibilities. Otherwise...you're in for a rough future, and paying for the insurance company's profitability through your suffering. Best of luck!
