Yup. Took five years to get a proper diagnosis for myself and two of those years were with the jackassedess doctor in this state.

I'm sure that those who know me from the other board have heard me bitch about my right shoulder. I've seen a chiropractor, who was supposed to "fix" it. Nope. I've had cortisone injections in my shoulder. No...just made me more sore, and more pissed off. I've had doctors tell me nothing is wrong with me, without an x-ray, and when my husband came in because HIS shoulder hurt, the same damn doctor insisted on a series of x-rays, and physical therapy for him. But mine's all in my head.
Well, because my shoulder aches more often than not, it affects my back. And when your back is out of whack, it affects your hips and knees, because your posture sucks, and everything else hurts.
I have to wonder if I don't have fibromyalgia. I really do. And I'm so damn tired of being in pain ALL THE TIME. I want to go running, but I'm sore. Being sore makes me tired, and it gets in the way of school.
*sigh* Sorry, I started my bitchfest up. I'll cut this one short. Maybe my new doctor will actually talk to me about this. She sees other people with fibro, and I know this because we see them at work.
