Thanks for your replies. Ides, I am calling my dr to get a referral of a good rheumy. Sometimes I feel like it's all in my head and I should count my blessings, but on the other hand I want to raise my kids and not sleep through their childhood. I don't have to feel good, I just want to be able to function. I know this wears on my husband too. I am just so glad he is as great as he is. I couldn't do all this alone. I willo let you know how it goes. I just have one other question. If it is arthritis, wouldn't my remicade be treating it already? My physical therapist wants me checked for avn. She was concerned when I told her what I was experienceing.
