I am having trouble with the medical field believing how much pain I am in on a daily basis.
I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, panic disorder and depression back in 1982. The medical field had trouble then believing my physical symptoms. Now everyone is being treated for anxiety and depression. I'm facing the same trouble now as I did thirty years ago with fibromyalgia. I knew I had it, but Tylenol and a nap would help the pain and achiness. The trauma from a double neck fusion started my journey into the daily living hell of full blown fibromyalgia. Maybe thirty years down the road they will be more accepting of the fibromayalgia diagnosis.
