      Is there a way you could try to go to a different rheumatologist? I know that's not always an option, but if that specific office kept ignoring you, definitely try to go to a different one if you can. I had to go to three different ones in different cities before I could get a diagnosis. 💙

      Try to get a rheumatology referral from your gp. I don't know your situation and what tests you've had done but even if you get a fibro dx, I wouldn't stop pushing for regular blood tests as it could be something else or along side something else that just hasn't progressed enough to show yet (that's what happened with me).

      ive talked to various doctors, and only now 6 months ago did i get a rumo referral. it expired because the rumo office kept "pushing off" the appointment and "forgetting" about us, even after several calls

      Talk to your docter about your pain and ask to see rumo, their they'll cancel out everything and hopefully diagnosis you with fibro
