I am newly dx with Fibro, i have had it for about 2 years, but just got a real dx last week, I am happy that I now know that I am not crazy that the pain is real, and the sleepless nights, feeling tired all the time, are all real.. This year i have went thru 4 DRs before I got a Dr that would listen. One told me that I was getting old, the other one told me that Fibro is not real it is just something that the Dr says when they dont know what is really wrong with you! the 3rd one said that she would not give me anything, and the forth one said ok, all blood work has been done, to rule out anything else, so I feel that you have Fibro along with Chronic Pain Syndrome, and TMJ, not sure where the TMJ came in at, but oh well. This just added to my list of High BP, bludging disc, depression restless leg syndrome, Any advice for this Newbie?? ThanksView Thread
