Do you have fibromyalgia?
How long did your diagnosis take?
What meds are you talking?

I have suspected fibromyalgia, and my doctor told me on Friday that he thinks it is. I have a follow up appointment this Friday, but the pain is very bad. I hope I can make it to Friday. I only take tramadol for the pain, the few pain pills that I have tried don't really help. I know lyrica really helped, but my doctor seems reluctant to prescribe it.

It took me about a year to be diagnosed and I was diagnosed by my rheumatologist. They have put me on Lyrica and morphine. I recently traded the morphine in for medical marijuana. It works much better than the morphine. Good luck.

Were you treated during the diagnosis period?

I was diagnosed with it last summer & was given lyrica for it. I no longer take that med. I just smoke pot to deal with the pain.

Not for fibromyalgia. I have a lot more going on than that. I was kind of diagnosed as an afterthought.

I was given a tentative diagnosis on Thursday of polyarticular arthritis and fibromyalgia. I'm going for blood work in the morning. I refuse to take anything with crazy side effects though so I have no idea what they can actually do for me.
