Finely after over eight years of doctor appointment after doctor appointment, one medical bill after another, and having my family dr tell me to see a shrink b/c there is nothing wrong with me un I HAVE A DIAGNOSIS!! I have fibromyalgia!! Not what I wanted to hear but I can live with it. It won't kill me but will make aspects of my life difficult. BUT NOW IT HAS A NAME! I can now say that I have something instead of it being the mystery disease. Guess who found it? I DID! I got so fed up with the doctors that I got on the net and started typing in my symptoms. Several hours later I came up with fibromyalgia. Called my dr and made an appointment. Told my grandmother that I think I have it and she tells me that she also has it and it runs in our family. That would have been a nice tid-bit of info to have had a few years ago. So off to the dr I went and he confirmed it. Now I know I'm not imagining the whole stupid thing! I want to shout "I HAVE AN ILLNESS AND IT'S CALLED FIBROMYALGIA!!" from the roof tops. I feel so relieved. Like a big weight has been taken off my shoulders.
