I have been to two Rheumatologist (one in Midland, TX, one in Galveston TX). The first Rheumatologist nurse explain to me that the doctor won't treat me and all he does is make a diagnosis. When I went to the new Rheumatologist and I was told the same thing... that would need another doctor to treat me. So I have to wait over a month for the next appointment. My main problem is the first Dr. In Midland filled out paperwork for FMLA stating I was unsuitable for work due Fibromyalgia, severe depression, IBS, Reflux disease, joint stiffness, profound fatigue, joint pain, inability to concentrate, forgetfulness affecting work efficiency. My second Dr, in Galveston put on my patients reports that I have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Pain, Persistent Insomnia, Depression and Rash. However this doctor would not sign the paperwork required by my company while I'm Medical Leave. Without this form I loose my LTD Insurance along with three years of stock savings. Why will doctors note your symptoms and note them as chronic but are not willing to tell your company? Company is asking me again for the forms and I can't them filled till my next appointment and that is only if the new doctor will fill them out. What employment companies are required to be done isn't followed by the medical profession. Am I the only one with this problem?
Nothing like having chronic fatigue, chronic joint pain, severe body aches, insomnia, fibromyalgia fog, depression and ISB and having to deal with musical doctors.
