Managing fibromyalgia

I have concluded that most ailments that are diagnosed as being fibromyalgia are not autoimmune diseases at all and that rheumatologists are generally surprisingly inept at treating most forms of the disease. I got way better treatment from my general physician than anyone else. I made three trips to Mayo Clinic and the folks there never even were able to diagnose me properly, much less give me any effective treatment. One doctor glared at me and said, “Nobody every died of pain. Just go home and get over it.”

Oh, my word, what that dr said shows he has never had chronic pain – the
nerve of him treating someone who needs help with pain and saying THAT.

If I had not been in such terrific pain I might have assaulted him. It got worse the next morning when I went in to the Clinic, at my mother’s insistence, in the hope that the doctor assigned to my case might be willing to see me without an appointment. He actually did call me into his office where he spent half an hour berating and haranguing me for having dared to come to the great and famous Mayo Clinic and upsetting the divine balance of the Universe without an appointment.
