Hey, one more thing, be careful about telling doctors that you have fibromyalgia. Unfortunately that dx carries a profound stigma, even more so than narcolepsy if you can believe it.
My strategy, as I have both as well was this:
When seeing a new doctor I only told him about FM if asked. However, for the most part, a sleep doctor should know that FM is a possibility as its major stressor is unrestful, disturbed sleep; the cause is a whole other story, hence the stigma.
And so, feel any new doctors out and you'll know when it's time to tell them, if at all. I used to have a doctor that didn't even know about it b/c he was a misogynistic pig who literally scoffed at the dx before I even mentioned it, I don't remember how it came up, but he basically said he didn't believe in it and you'd be surprised, there are many, many doctors who do not believe in it, as they believe it is a neurotic, psychosomatic condition, despite the published, overwhelming evidence that it is indeed a central nervous system disorder. And so, I kept the condition to myself while with him and simply let a rheumatologist handle the FM and the jackass handle the other issues.
Thankfully, I now have a doctor who handles both and believes in both, as one exacerbates the other. And so I only caution you so that you might have some insight as to what you might run into out there b/c if I remember correctly you have been just recently dx'd with FM and I've been dealing with it since '95. I've run into several doctors who have a major hang up about FM. The stigma is a bit better, but when you run into the ignorance, it burns deep.
fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and a few others. Brain not working well right now.
yeah, but what 's new, eh?
