I had a Drs visit withe a pain specialist, this was the second time I saw her and was also the second time I had to correct her of her stupidity. She told me that I could not have fibro and lupus at the same time, that I would have one or the other. I told her yes you can that I also have a sister that lives in TX. that has it. I have been to the Mayo clinic and 5 doctors there agreed it was my fibro that was causing my problems and that my lupus was in remission. Also I have researched everything I can get my hands on about lupus and you can get fibro secondary to lupus. My rheumy is also a morron he dont even beleive in fibro. He thinks because there are no labs you can do then it just dont exist. Hoe stupid is that, this man needs to get out of the dinosaur days and educate himself. There are to many people that has the same syptoms for it not to exist. Well I will be looking for new doctors. It is just so hard to find a good doctor here in NM. I have to drive to TX. to get a good doctor, I guess I will do that Im just tired of these doctors either they dont listen to you or they think it dont even exist. Sorry I just needed to vent and rave a little. Thank you all. Hugs
