I finally got in to see my dr yesterday, after months of rescheduled appts. He was semi upset with me about having missed the previous appointments, but he understood. Now I have 8 wks to get a medical card, because he wants me to see a rheumy asap. Some of my labs came back with possible markers for MS, and even so he told me not to take Ibuprophen like I have been, I'm like wth?! What am I supposed to do for pain? Read it a bedtime story? After he laughed he told me that once I see a rheumy he'll change my meds, but he wants a positive DX on either MS or fibro first. And now, with my 3 old scripts of Celexa, Flexeril and Despiramine, he put me on 3 more otc suppliments, Osteo Bi-Flex, melatonin, and B-complex.
I did sleep better last night, not sure if it was because I missed my usual nap yesterday, or if it was the meds.
Gotta go now, time for hubby's Vanco IV as he has an active case of MRSA.

Jeez, Mr's Cavbar- Not sure if he has a method to his madness on why he is not giving you something for the pain. Can you at least take Tylenol?? It may help take the edge off-

Wow. Well I hope you are pushing the rheumy apt, tell them you are in pain and need to be seen asap. My rheumy was pretty sympathetic about my pain and I walked out with a pain med.
I take/ have taken otc supplements as he has prescribed you and they have helped me alot. Esp the B complex. I would see if the Osteo Bi-Flex helps with your arthritis (give it a month+). Some of these things just give you expensive pee! lol
At least he is looking at other angles to help you and referred you to a rheumy when he couldnt. I wonder if he is worried about your heart when it comes to the ibuprofen?? I wish doctors would be more clear!
Take care,
