Diagnosis Discrimination From Healthcare Providers

Diagnosis Discrimination From Healthcare Providers

Before I start I must first say that I appreciate honesty from anyone. When I went to a new PCP a few months back, she disclosed that she doesn't treat patients with Fibromyalgia because she doesn't understand enough about it and the variety of symptoms. Okay!

Wow @A MyFibroTeam Member

Update: My primary care told me that I need to search around for someone who would see me and then contact them. I asked about seeing other Specialist but she insist that it has to be a Rheumy.

I could not afford once they stopped accepting all insurances. I do believe that I would be much worse if we hadn't figured the elimination of dairy and gluten as a regimen while I was seeing him.

Thankfully because my ibs got so bad I couldn't eat I was sent to specialist and found to be gluten intolerant so I'm on a gluten free diet and ins has settled down a lot but my gp has put me on waiting list for pain management clinic as he says he can't give me any more meds I'm on so many and the pain is just about bearable
