How The Opioid Crisis Hurts Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia Patients


The Never-ending Nightmare

After two conversations with my doctor’s office in the past two days, I finally put my foot down and demanded a referral to a Rheumatologist. I feel like I’M the doctor, because it’s been three weeks and they still haven’t managed to acquire my records from other physicians. I was told to reach out to them… I did not realize it was part of ,my job description. I’m fed up and I’m tired of being told my neck/back/spine is “just a muscle thing”. No, it isn’t. I’m many things, but dumb isn’t one of them. So yeah, it’s been a frustrating week, to say the least.
