Well sorry to here your trouble and the response from your DOC is typical of mnay well meaning docs but it will have its good moments too. I had to medically retire in 2004 after fighting to stay on the job used up all my extra perks andstill no end in sight at the time my doc thought I was fighting a very nasty flu cycle. Well 14 months later no improvement and she and colleauge finally concluded that i had fibro (32 pills 4 times a day not an ounce of pain relief or energy to boot. My husband left me , my friends without a backward glance left and I was at an Internet cafe and total stranger now best friend took the time to sit and hear me out.. so there are angels here on Earth.
