Sep 6, 2017 · Complex Diagnosis Reshapes a College Student’s Future

I was just diagnosed with fribromyalgia today. I have been dealing with pain and being tired all the time for about 6 years now. I cried in the doctors office beause i was so relieved to have an answer. I would have to call out of work because of the pain and i am just so exhausted. My family would say i am a baby or i am faking it. The doctors would give me pain killers and send me on my way. I finally had enough i went to a another new doctor and told him im tired of being called crazy by doctors. I am so thankful they finally believed me. I am only 21 and i have been suffering since 15 years old. I finally have an answer.
