    Funny… but I guess I disagree with the nature of the post. I have a friend that suffers from fibromyalgia, and I know she's no “whiner” or “addict”.

    I've seen her in so much pain that she can barely move (and, to make things worse, she has Lupus, as well). There have been times where she's had to call friends to get her out of the bathtub, because she is in so much pain, and has no idea why.

    But yeah, it's a funny post.

    Not saying all people with fibromyalgia are whiners or addicts, Crazynewt.

    Just saying that many of them who regularly appear in the ER begging for narcotics are.

    Or even more likely, don;t have fibromyalgia at all. It's a condition ripe for abuse and overdiagnosis.

    crazynewt,

    Why is the doctor diagnosing her with fibromyalgia, when she has lupus? At best fibromyalgia is a watered down version of lupus, but without the stuff that actually ends up killing people who have lupus.
