I've seen this advice posted elsewhere on this board. If you don't have other problems and other meds to have to balance, maybe you could try asking for a trial of Cymbalta from a GP while you look for another pdoc. Most GP's I've been to are less likely to get their feathers ruffled by patient suggestions. Not as much ego, perhaps?

I've also discovered that if there is something in particular you want the doctor to recognize, you can't go at it directly. You have to work it so that they think they thought of it themselves.

For example, if you think you have fibromyalgia, don't go in and say "I think I have fibromyalgia." Go in and describe the symptoms you are having and let the doc come up with the dx.

Good luck
Marsha
