Hello.....I am new to this community but I am normally on the Fibromyalgiasite. I wanted to comment though to you. IF you can not find someone who will help you then you should call around and see if you can find a FM doctor.
I would also suggest that you ask your doctor to check your Vitamin D level and your Vitamin B levels as well.
Low Vitamin D can cause a lot of additional pain for some people and it can also affect other illnesses as well.
You need to have a doctor to stand behind you when you apply for your SSD....and yes you can get it, if you are not able to work...but it might take a long time for it to be approved. For a doctor to tell you there is nothing wrong with you....when you know that you are not well and can not work....then you should indeed find yourself another doctor.
I also suffer from Chronic Fatigue and I have not found anything which has helped me with this. I have learned how to *control my FM pain by taking vitamins and supplements and doing other things as well. So hang in there and try to find a doctor who will help you figure out what is going on with you.
I hope you will also visit the Fibromyalgiasite as well....I am sure you will get some good ideas from the FMers there too.
