Gosh, it seems impossible to receive a legitimate diagnosis of fibromyalgia, doesn’t it?
A lot of FibroDaily supporters tell me they figured out on their own that they have fibromyalgia because they couldn’t find a doctor in their insurance network or city who knows anything about fibromyalgia. Even worse, some of them reveal that the doctors they have access to ridicule their symptoms, deeming them the result of an overemotional personality. And some doctors accuse patients of wasting time with needy cries for attention.
Talk about infuriating.
if you’re new to the site or still trying to figure out what condition ails you, the following article from The Health Site by Bhavyajyoti Chilukoti offers excellent info. While I rarely encourage total reliance on self-diagnosis, its relevance makes sense in a world that often overlooks pain and fatigue patients. Therefore, I urge you to keep researching viable medical resources while also keeping up the search for an informed doctor that insurance (or a self-pay plan) permits you to see.
Besides, knowing about your disease makes you more than someone who’s trying to self-diagnose. It makes you informed. No one should ridicule that.
