I went to a "pain specialist" last month. It was a bad day and took everything I had to get there. Left me like a blob. the Doctor told me...."CFS doesn't HAVE pain". Man was I pissed! I have pain!I feel fortunate it's managable alot of the time, but it certainly effects my life and activities.He said maybe I have fibromyalgia. Screw that...I'm not adding that because he says CFS doesn't involve pain! PLEASE!!! Tell me some of you have pain and no fibromyagia diagnosis! He says since no tissue damage is occuring, it's just that my brain "thinks" I'm in pain. What's the difference you condescending asshole! I wish I could get something for the periods that it's hard to cope or function. My MD gives me vicodin sporadically, but it doesn't help very much. Better than nothing,but I so wish I had something stronger. I take neurontin and motrin regularly. I think that makes it generally bearable. I lack the energy(or funds) to go looking for another doctor. Any suggestions? Thanks for "listening'! Tina
