Re: Rheumy visit
Well, I saw the rheumatologist today. He was nice and actually did seem to listen to my symptoms. But I'm still lost and confused. He basically said I have CFS and Fibro, but didn't tell me what to do. He gave me a referral to psychophamracology to get a prescription for Adderrall (sp?) or another energizing medication, because I guess in the network he works in only psych can prescribe these things, and a referral to GI about possible IBS. Other than that he said come back in 3 months.
Has anyone used Adderrall (or something similar) for Fibro? I'm so confused. I feel like I've been told I have this lifelong disease but there's no cure. To make matters worse I cried in his office, out of frustration mostly, so I probably looked like an emotional, pathetic fool. I need my life back!! Will Adderrall give it to me, or should I try another doctor? I don't think I have the energy, quite frankly.
