I am baffled. I mean no offense to anyone who has fibromyalgia. I believe this is a true illness/syndrome and I'm sure I have it. I am baffled by what the Dr. said was the cause of it. He also now calls it Tension Myositis Syndrome. He said the cause of my joint pain (and possibly all my back issues) is from unconscious rage I have from my childhood. He handed me a pamphlet and told me to go to seminars at a hospital 40 miles from my home! He did not x-ray any joints or do blood work. That pamphlet cost me alot of $ what a waste. I lived away from home at 14 and had therapy weekly along with group therapy for 4 years. Believe me I got tons of rage out! My Parents and I reconciled 30 years ago! I have PRESENT rage that I'm very conscious of though. I'm angry about being disabled,about leaving my job,about my discs blowing one by one,walking with a cane for years,all the pain and saddness I've endured,and all the things I've missed aong the way!!! And I'm angry about Physicians who hand you pamphlets and say your surgeries aren't working even tough I AM WALKING PROOF. I'd like to give him a pinched nerve and tell him it's his unconscious rage. And give him a pamphlet.
