Refreshing news


Smile I had a doctor's appointment this morning with my GP. It was really for a follow up for Lyme's Disease, which I got from two tick bites and have been on antibiotics for a month. He had a student doctor with him today. She is still in school. When I told her that I had Fibro Myalsia she seemed very excited. She said that she had been studying it and was very interested. She showed me some exercises to do to help with the pain. It was just nice to have someone so interested in the condition and really refreshing to know that they are teaching new doctors about it! Maybe there is hope!

That's great Wintersnow. My Dr didn't believe in it at first then she came down with MS. So now she listens to her patients and their complaints. If it wasn't for her, I never would have got my SSDI.

That is good news Winter!! That's what we need DR's being trained to treat fibro. I hope your feeling ok.

It's great to find a doctor who doesn't doubt what you are feeling.

My rheumy also informed me that students are learning more about Fibromyalgia in medical school. It's very comforting. Thanks for sharing.

I think that is great. The one thing that mds need to be taught is to listen to their pts and not just try to catorgorize them. My obgyn told me one time that medicine is only a science, nothing is proof positive in it, which means not everything fits perfectly into their text books.

Even though I have my rheumy that I love now, I still think we should all take a road trip to go see that blind doctor!

You KNOW he listens to his patients!

Touchy hugs, Tina
