I have not been formerly diagnosed with fibromyalgia or myofascial pain syndrome. my doctor just keeps saying that is probably what it is and keeps prescribing more drugs. what kind of doctor should i go to who will point me in the right direction and find out what is really wrong with me?

My diagnosis came from a consultant at a Rheumatology clinic at my local hospital. Tell your doctor this and say would it be a good idea if I could possibly see such a consultant recommended by yourself.
Good luck and happy new year chris, let us know how you go on.

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!

If you are diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you might want to check out www.helpmyfibromyalgia.com. It's a really great site, it's hard to find in a search, since it's a faily new site, but someone told me about it and it has some wonderful information. The lady has also written a book on fybromyalgia, it will be available soon, she's a nurse, so it's accurate information. I'd really suggest looking at the site! I hope she can help you like she's helped me.
