Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, and doctors are reluctant to do this?

Call rosefox8 ? Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, and doctors are reluctant to do I have experienced many symptoms of pain since the summer of 2006 (widespread chronic pain, soft tissue pain, tenderness, fatigue, weakness, pain, pain, sleep problems, concentration problems , brains fog migraines and muscle cramps). I have cerebral palsy on my left, and epilepsy. A friend with fibromyalgia suggested I see a doctor because they suspect I have fibromyalgia. When I saw the doctor, she prescribed me Cymbalta, took my blood and told me that it was “non-specific widespread chronic pain”. She was reluctant to say anything about fibro because “it can be anything.” The blood tests are fine. The Cymbalta helps somewhat. My friend still feels that it could not be anything else. My gut instinct, my intuition says it is fibro. But I do not want to seem hypochondriac, especially since I have several other diagnosed conditions. I’m just afraid that the doctor will remain reluctant to diagnose best answer.

Oh, I believe that the repercussions of the whole ‘trash’ diagnosis thing. Many doctors were criticized for diagnosing fibromyalgia for issues that had not been thoroughly examined. I would ask to see. A rheumatologist If you’ve seen one, get a second opinion.
