"Life is far too important to be taken seriously." –Oscar Wilde, 1982
SSJ - Please get another doctor!!! So many on this forum can relate to your story or have come across some very unqualified and unfeeling (terrible combination) doctors, on the road to figuring all this out. I stayed with a doctor for far too long who minimized my complaints and made me feel like a nutty whiner. Time wasted. You really do need a good rheumatologist. Listen to your body and the intuition that is telling you something is not right. You can learn a lot here, and find encouragement - especially for eventually finding a doctor who will listen and test and treat appropriately. Hang in there and don't give up!
