There are some doctors who believe that fibromyalgia is bull hockey and will not treat. But for those who have this horrible disease they know it exsits and is real. The only way to diagnose a person with fibromyalgia is to "rule out" everything else. Once this is done most doctors will finally diagnose. If you have gone to your doctor and he/she is not willing to listen then I would switch doctors.
My sister has fibromyalgia and there are days where she is in the bed off/on due to pain and stiffness. She takes meds for it and it seems to really help. Best wishes.

Fibromyalgia is not a real disorder....it's a diagnosis given when nothing else can be found to be wrong
Hey anon-if you had this the disorder......I'm sure you wouldn't have posted such an unsympathetic statement!
