I have posted a great deal about my issues. I saw my new Primary Doctor again. He's a great Doctor...though I had to push him a bit. His diagnosis as of right now is fibromyalgia which I can certainly agree to and he did check my tender points being as he is a DO. I have an appointment next week with a Rheumatologist. I know that she will be testing me for ALOT of stuff, which is great because my PDoc only tested ANA with complements.

Here's my request for help: How have you guys dealt with people who are have no empathy or are rude about your health? I am shocked because I am in Health Care and I have my Pharmacy Manager telling me that FMS isn't real and that I just need to take vitamin B. My boyfriend told me last night that people at his work - A DIABETES EDUCATION CENTER-are saying that FMS is BS.

I think I probably do have Fibromyalgia but I need to find out if it is secondary or primary Fibromyalgia. My father was diagnosed with this and my father is the guy that told the dentist not to use novacaine when they pull teeth- i think he was in pain to go into the doctor and get the diagnosis... my point is that it *****s me off when people act that way because my dad isn't a hypochondriac and neither am I.

Any suggestions on how to deal with people who just run their mouths to hear their own voices? I have enough to worry about right now, can anyone give me some advise from their own experiences? I can not afford to waste my energy on such silliness and I need advise on how to cope.
