New to fibro- seeking dr in St. Louis mo

By April 19, 2015 - 11:46am

I haven't been able to get a fibro diagnosis and therefor treatment by my GP. I am fairly certain I have it- I have chronic pain, fatigue, sleep problems, depression, and 13 of the 18 trigger points. The worst symptom for me is the pain. I have deep muscle pain. I feel as if I've worked out hard for days or hurt myself, but I haven't. I find it hard to move. Joint pain in my knees and hips. Deep muscle pain in my back, neck, shoulders and arms. I recently was fired from my job because I had to miss work and/or leave early. I'm an Esthetician, so it's hard to wax, massage and do makeup when my arms and shoulders hurt so badly. I also have trouble with chores and taking care of my little boy. I have already tried cymbalta, but I have to stay on celexa BC it is the best for my depression.

That all being said, I need to find a dr who will take me seriously. Any suggestions are appreciated
