I can relate to all of this (hope I'm not out-of-order posting here)!! I'm currently undx'd with what I suspect is fibromyalgia... pain in joints and muscles not otherwise explained, IBS, etc. They just keep testing me instead of coming to that conclusion. It's really frustrating! ...and I was in the hospital recently for a headache SO bad they gave me dilaudid and it did nothing. Then, when I told them that, they looked at me like I was drug-seeking! ....and my MOM was in the room with me! I was so insulted. I believe educating yourself IS arming yourself, despite the results.View Thread
Hi, all! I'm new here. You can call me CC (well, you can call me anything you want, really) if you like. I'm bp1, and I remember symptoms as far back as when I was 9 (I'm 38 now). I'm on a lot of meds right now 'cause my old pdoc was not so good and had me cycling rather quickly. I just look forward to having a place here where I can feel comfortable and like people understand me. That's not something I've really had before. Anyway, I'm willing to offer advice or cheer whenever I can!! Hope to hear from you all soon!!
