Brenna, if I can remember, I'll post the link that my friend sent me. I have it in a different email account.

Thanks, Eileen.

I work with an acupuncturist, but we concentrate on symptoms and blockages. It does help a lot.

I just lost the note I wrote and will be brief due to time constraints. Many Dr.s are not up on the education of FM as FM is still in it's infancy of telling us what the body is progressing to. I work with a massage therapist as well as my Dr. That's the only way I am up and walking. Find a Dr. that treat FM. Some are into the Homeopathic medicine and I find them to be quite credible. Then try to find a massage therapist that works with FM clients as they know what.how to work with it. If they don't they tend to cause more pain than necessary making many FM people very wary of therapy. Good luck in seeking help.

Hi. New to the Team. I'm another "I might have it" person.

I've been to two rheumatologists, and both have said "no," but the 2nd one said my symptoms act like it, but my blood work does not show it. I have a friend who went through H-you know what to get a diagnosis and is VERY disabled by it, and he has told me that fibro is definitely what I have, to heck with what the doctors say.

It's been very frustrating trying to get a diagnosis. Someone forwarded me another resource and a local doctor yesterday, so I'm going to follow that up.

I DO a LOT of the symptoms, and I've done a lot of reading on it. I'm pretty sure I have it.

I guess my question is what do you do when your doctors are clueless?

HI. To answer your question, the best thing you can do for yourself is to see your Dr., discussing the symptoms you are currently having. Check in with a Rheumatologist unless your insurance requires a referral from your primary physician. They are the ones that are more knowledgeable and can diagnose it a well as getting you the right treatment. There are so many different areas it affects and so many different paths of individualized treatment. I find it is an ever evolving disease and really needs individual assessment. Good luck in finding out what is going on with you.

my grandma has it, my great aunt charlet (grandmas maternal half sister) has it, my great grandma had it

my husband claims that I have fibromyalgia because of my forgetfulness. i thought most women had it period from having kidz and having to keep track of so many things.

but anyways.

IF I do have it, and maybe have some EARLY signs of it, what are some things I can do, instill into my current routine to help myself or whatever?
