I hate the word...Fibromyalgia. This is not downing those that have it, but I don't. I am so sick of going to doctors and them diagnosing me with this "clinical invention" before even examining me. So, I fit the profile (I am female and between 20 and 40 yrs old) geesh I fit a lot of profiles. I go to a new doc tomorrow that I have waited 3 months to see and I swear if she utters even Fibro I will scream and hit her upside the head. I have NO let me repeat NO tender points or even that many symptoms of Fibro. I do not want to be given a diagnoses just for the sake of having one, but shoot I know my body better than anyone else and I know it's not this Fibro thingy. Ok great I am glad I had a rant and am wondering if there are others that received this diagnoses before the MS diagnoses?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
