I had blood test, xrays, you name it. I had one Dr say she thought she was 75% sure I had fibro... Um hello,,,,so I or not, My Dr here confirmed it and put me on Cymbalta. It seems to be working for me, but some days feels like it is doing nothing. We all have those days

That’s a terrible answer! From a doctor? There is medication fo at least try. Lyrica is very good. I’d get a new doctor , or go to a rheumatologist. Good luck!

I had so many tests I can't recall all of them. Once diagnosed with fibro we started immediately on meds. Try to see a rheumatologist.

I got a lot of tests to rule out almost everything else it could be since fibro diagnosis is based on symptoms really, got tested for neuropathy ms loopus limes disease diabetes and carpal tunnel with nerve testing in arms and legs all were normal so I figured fibro was the culprit after reasesrching just had to wait for the diagnosis and I had as right was told to start cymbalta heard a lot of bad feedback so I didn’t I cut foods out of my diet helped a lot I as told to cut sugars dairy gluten. I think it’s caries person person, I found I had a sensitivity to dairy so I cut that out and it definitely helped and ao does yoga or Pilates based exercises. And of course 800 mg motrin lol get a new doc if you haven’t already :) good luck feel well and stay positive ❤️
