Honestly I cannot believe some doctors..why on earth can't a GP treat fibro?? My NP treats my fibro and quite well I must add..I hate the way medicine has become, refer refer refer..It is ridiculous..and it is all about making as much money as they can. I have been dealing with fibro for a long time, the only doctor I ever saw for pain was my NPs colleague who is a DO..He used to do osteopathic manipulation on me for pain. It was wonderful..I just think a lot of doctors do not think the pain of fibro is real, therefore they are hesitant to prescribe anything..I take percocets and neurontin for pain. I am so not addicted. I constantly forget to take them..I think if you have a good doctor, one that you can talk to comfortably about everything, then you should be able to get whatever medication you need to be comfortable and happy..I am so old school it isn't funny..lolol..or maybe it is.
peace and love
