I went in and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and EDS. The Dr. didn’t even do a blood test for EDS (There is one available!) He refused to believe I grew up where there was Lyme disease and that I had it as a child. (I grew up in Tennessee!). I was born in another state and moved when I was 1 or 2, so for some reason, no matter what I said, he wouldn’t believe I knew where I grew up. He was trying to say I had symptoms I simply didn’t have for EDS. I looked at the diagnostic criteria for it. I just do NOT have any signs of it!
I do for Fibromyaligia and he did give me meds, so that’s good, but I called back a couple months later asking if he’d write the diagnosis for me so I could take it to my primary care who can give me referrals to Pain Management. (It has to come from the PCP.) He refused saying, “He doesn’t know for sure I have it, so he won’t say I do.” I literally can’t get care because he refused to say it...after he already told me that I did and even gave me meds for it! I won’t go to a Dr. who doesn’t feel confident in his care and refuses the help I feel I need. He was nice and took his time so I’ll give an extra star for that.
