Re: New Fibromyalgia Diagnosis
welcome to the boards sm,
i agree with your idea to return to your gp for treatment. if you do not like the rheumy and most of them are hard to like, fire him. i have fired 4 of them and 17 total since i started this journey.
i do not take meds for fibro. they don't work for me and the side affects just are not worth it to me. i meditate, exercise, laugh alot, eat vegetarian, drink buckets of spring water, take vitamins, and mostly stay happy and adapt to each change as it comes.
i also have injections in my knees. like you they are shot. giggle.
when faced with something you cannot control peace lies in self education and adaptation to the situation.
