Hi all~ new here. I need advice on how to get to a Dr. who will understand what Fibro is and how to treat it. I am unemployed now due to it and waiting to see if I will be blessed with SSDI. So I have limited resources and have to see the PCP that has been assigned to me by county health program. I am on gaba, tramadol, flexeril and mobic. None help that much. I also have depression and severe anxiety due to fibro and life cirumstances. I live 30 miles west of Detroit. Thanks for any answers. Also I am divorced and have no children so my only support in the past has been from 3 of my 6 siblings. But now all think I am lazy and lying about the pain just to not work. My sitution is very dire now as I have no support, no home now ( living in a camper ) and family thinks I want it this way ?! They are so uncompassionate I have cut off most com. with most of them. Any advice would help-on SSDI or Dr.'s or family! Thanks to all.View Thread
