Hey so I've no idea if this is the right place to put this but I'm feeling angry and upset and I just need some advice. (I'm in the UK, by the way!) I've been waiting for four months for my pain clinic appt to come around. I already have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and I planned on asking for the clinic to refer me to the M.E. clinic as I wanted to see if they felt I had M.E. as well as fibro. I had a five minute appt where the doctor just fired questions at me and didn't look up from her paper. I was told that I shouldn't call it fibromyalgia because that's "not helpful" but I should call it "widespread pain" instead. Was told to come off meds as they're useless, and I couldn't have a referral to the M.E. clinic because they don't take anyone with chronic pain. (!?) I did get a referral to the pain management course so we'll see how that goes. But I feel patronised and angry that she belittled my condition and made me feel like I was being silly. I didn't need to wait four months for that appt, my GP could have done what she did today back in July when I first got the referral. I'm tired and angry and so cross that I was treated that way. I basically feel like I'm not getting the treatment I need and I wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience and had any ideas where to go from here?
