Customer Question
I have a dear...

I have a dear friend who has had fibromyalgia for years. She has taken and is taking many medications for the pain from opiates to cannabis oil, antidepressants, etc. She is currently hospitalized, as she went in a week ago for a gallbladder biopsy, was discharged, but then re-hospitalized because of intense pain. She is in another country so not sure they are up to date on these issues. also I'm afraid she may have been using or used too many medications. Is there any place that specializes in fibromyalgia and takes people in patient for treatment? TY for your help

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No this is for a dear friend of mine.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
