#ButDon’tYouWantToGetBetter: Women, Doctors, and the Lack of Diagnosis

Took me over 4 years to get a fibromyalgia diagnosis. 5 years is the average diagnosis time, as 80% of the patients are female.

Don’t let a doctor disregard your pain – especially if you’re female. We know our bodies, we know when something’s wrong, take that s— to another doctor (& another, & another) until someone listens to you.
