Do you ever think....

Posted by   + Show Post

 you can diagnosis yourself better than a doctor sometimes?

After my recent trip to a doc who specializes in Rhemotoid arthritis, allergies, and Fibromyalgia (where he told me nothing was wrong w/ me), I got very frustrated and started researching Fibro more.  One of my good friends has it - so she said did he do the trigger test?  I was like no, what is that?  So I googled it and I *believe* I have Fibro.  Soooo many things match up.  She said theres a good local doc I could try.  It took her 3 docs to finally get answers.  I always wondered why nothing OTC touched my pains....and I guess this is why.  Do you ever feel this way?  Anyone have Fibro?

 Sometimes I think so.  My daughter was misdiagnosed for a year and a half, and it wasn't until I took matters into my own hands and flew across the country we got the right one- because I went with my gut.  So yes, I fully believe sometimes we know better, because it's our bodies, or are children.

I have diagnosed myself before. I went in and told them what tests to run. I was right.
