I went to my doctor today, she was not really herself I had my long list in hand and started with my questions... she kept saying anxiety, anxiety, anxiety... finally I exploded into tears and said " I know there is something very wrong with me and I am going to be more than mad if there is and every one tried to chalk it up to anxiety" then she laid me down and started trying to adjust my back, I told her I did not feel that was a good idea and tried to sit up, she laid me back down and did it anyway... then she said " well your ribs not out of place anymore, I'm sending you to a neurologists, I just don't know what's wrong with you" I was a little dumb founded and upset... what can I expect from a neurologist? Should I be more scared or relieved? Honestly today aside from being very dizzy and the spot on my spine I have felt pretty great which is pretty great except for when it comes back

a neurologist is a good idea. i love that your doc was honest enough to say she does not know what is wrong or what to do. you will be asked a bunch of questions, get the relfex hammer bit, maybe some nerve conduction tests. those can hurt. all of this will be to see if you have any permenant nerve damage that may be causing your pain.
so, even tho you did not want her to adjust you, you let her. and today you feel better. perhaps she saw something you did not? one question out of curiosity, why did you let her do something to you that you did not want?
be relieved. every step counts and i have found each doc adds a bit to the knowledge i have about me.

Blue, I don't know why I let her continue to do it, I told her it wasn't a good idea and tried to get up but she laid me eight back down and proceeded... I have never been one to stand up for myself and I am Terrible with confrontation, etc... The fact that I even stood up for myself a little would amaze you if you knew me I'm really tired of being a door mat! Honestly I think I always thought if I came across as the nice one people would be there for me, instead it is really backfiring because I am more alone than ever but I try not to let that get me down and I say to myself often that next time someone needs me I won't be there, but guess what? I always am of course... Stupid Pisces I am...
brookie girl it's hard to have fibro and not know how to stand up for yourself. i was the same way till i got a good shrink to teach me kind ways of standing my ground. i have gotten quite good at it. that welcome sign on my forehead is gone and i love it!
i am proud of you for taking a baby step. keep at it little sister. it's worth it.
