At this point, it does not sound to me like you have Fibromyalgia (but that is just my opinion, ok?)
I have had sciatica at different times, and it usually 'goes away' after a time and is not a chronic condition. Again...this is MY experience.
Also...have you considered doctors of alternative medicine??
Good luck. Keep us posted!
thank you bettsann for replying and your advice. Your words give me hope that I may be able to get some help. I am hoping to find a new doctor though I belong to one practice and the doctors use the same case notes.
I need a doctor who can look at me with 'fresh' eyes to see if anything new can be uncovered, look at me as if it was a medical challenge rather than a statisitical probability which is the label I feel I have been attached too.
I need to go now, feeling dizzy, headache and tired through lack of sleep.
take care hope your situation gives you good days
