My 1st appt gave me hope that I would find a resolution to my pain issues. All over body pain during that appt we talked about running test and then if all was well coming up with a plan to treat Fibromyalgia I went back to him 3 weeks later and I feel like I was lost in the cracks of his practice. I was having a pretty bad day pain wise but no mention of Fibro, a treatment plan, nothing he basically told me to go back to Primary. He was my last hope.
