It's not real

I took a doctor to task over the weekend after he admitted that he didn't believe in a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia.  I told him it didn't matter to the patient what the problem was called, it was real and of concern to them, and that he needed to read up on it and learn more.  That, as an ED doc, he wasn't qualified in the appropriate specialty to make the determination about the reality of the disease, and that he needed to focus on what was happening to his patient, not what someone calls their disease.

He actually thanked me.  I hope he actually does something about it.
