Hello New Here

Hello Everyone,
Im new to this board. I just found out after 2 1/2 years of pain that I have Fibro and much more.
My reg dr just said that I have chronic pain and just go home and live with it
I have DDD, bulge disk ,slight herniated disk, aurthritis, and now I finially found some to say why I have the pain and why prescriptions dont work for me .
What really bugs me this new dr took blood work and spent 1 hour with me and mine never spent that much time with me in 2 years. But mine did say
that the pain isnt as bad as I think it is that Im making it worse then it is.
Some times I hate drs, and attorneys.
They want me to go to work and just deal with it but they dont seem to understand the pain that I have gets to be so bad that sometimes I wished
I was totally cut in half so I couldnt feel that pain for just one day.

Sorry about the complaining I just wished once they could have my pain for
one or two days and then say just live with it.
Any way Im glad I found this board and that I can see Im not the only one going through this pain.

Thank you for listening

Hi Kathy--

I just wrote you a long response back, but had been knocked offline somewher along the way, so I'll make this short:


Yes, this is the right place.

Regarding doctors---have you tried a good rhematologist? Sometimes they treat the disorder and are more educated and understanding about it.

I had to call to a prestigious hospital out of state and ask for the Rhematology Department and they gave me one of their doctors who has been a godsend.

I look forward to hearing more from you on the message board.

Hello Ed,
Thank you, yes I found a dr that finially knows something about fibro.
She runs a fibromyalgai and fatigue clinic. Ive had such problems sleeping, eating, just everything and anything during the day and she gave me some natural sleeping aids and some other things to try it was so nice to get more then 2 hours a sleep. But my only problem is that they are so far away in 4 states away. But they did say that they where going to build one in my state yet this summer I hope they are right. Its nice to finially have someone know what Im going through and that doesnt make me feel like Im nuts!!!
So many have done that to me and made me feel like it was all in my head and to finially know this is real and Im not alone.
Anyway thanks Ed for your reply
