Fashionably late to parties I wasn't invited to.
I think as time goes on we might hear about folks misdiagnosed with fibro only to find out years later it was something else that didn’t get diagnosed properly due to testing not being up to it yet or due to a lack of curiousity in physicians plus good ol’ fashioned malingering.
I was originally diagnosed with Fibro but it turns out that it was Systematic Lupus all along - after extensive testing. Fibromyalgia is an odd thing. I think it's a medical diagnoses to blanket an undiagnosed disease/disorder a person may be suffering from. And because of that we have Munchies that have basically stolen that blanket because it is hard to pin-point just what the fuck is going on - therefore its a little hard to say "NO YOU DON'T HAVE THAT" people tend to just go "Oh, ok."
Does that make sense? Either way it pisses me off that the Munchies have done that. Because there is validity to genuine "Fibro" diagnosis. And its frustrating - because people lump the legitimate sufferers from undiagnosed conditions with Munchies.
