Addendum November 24, 2008

I feel like I should add an addendum to my previous post about fibromyalgia. I think that one of the reasons that it is so frustrating to me is that there is very little that I can offer to patients that really helps. Much like mild-to-moderate depression, low back pain and tension headaches, the treatments involve a lot of work on the patient’s part, and nothing is a guaranteed cure. It’s a lot more fulfilling to dispense some Allegra and Nasonex and watch people’s seasonal allergies disappear like magic. For someone who got into healthcare out of a desire to help people have better, healthier lives, it’s upsetting to have so little to offer.
