After a 6 month wait, I finally saw the rheumatologist today about my fibromyalgia. The doctor was amazing, she spent 30 minutes talking with us. She re-confirmed the fibromyalgia diagnosis + added a new diagnosis of hypermobility. She can't do much, but is asking my GP to increase one of my current meds + referring me to a pain clinic. She thinks I need a multidisciplinary treatment in order to improve. So good news and bad news as now we wait again for the referral to go through. Here's hoping the waiting list isn't 6 months long like this first one was. She thought my case was extremely severe + agrees nothing will change without the multidisciplinary treatment. Thanks for yall's prayers + support during this journey!
