Find another doc!

I live in KY, just moved here this summer..and the first doctor I went to, a GP, had no problem giving me pain meds...in fact it was much easier with him than with my former doc in WI! At my second visit he expressed concern about the amount of tylenol I was taking at the doses of vicoden I use every day...his suggestion is oxycontin. Now THAT surpised me some..But he has a sister in law with fibro...and seems to take it as a serious illness. So, I KNOW there is a doc in TN that will prescribe meds for that will help you be more comfortable. You can make calls...and ask if they treat fibro patients at the office before you make an appointment. You can also have a consultation appointment to assess how the doctor will treat you!
There is a good doctor list that can tell you doctors in your area that are good with fibro patients too. I think it is on the national fibromyalgia association site.
Good luck..and don't give up!
You deserve to get help!
