      so did you go to your regular doctor and they recommended u 2 a rheumatologist or did you go to your fibro doctor and they recommended you to a rheumatologist. Sorry I get confused easy thanks for the info.

      hi again...i saw the rheumatologist in Florida on vacation. but here in Toronto i am seeing a Neurologist every 3 months and my family doctor inbetween. my neurologist didn't give me an answer when i asked him if i should see a neurologist and also no answer when i asked because i need a walker is this a severe case of fibromyalgia...still no answer he just kept writing in my file...so really i don;t have a complete diagnosis, i only succumb to fibro because in 2001 thats what they said it was, but i was no where near this bad, however, for 3 months back then i did have trouble walking and i suppose i should of used a cane...so it take it now day by day..
