turn   since I usually post all bad stuff, and vent for a page or more, today I am going to start with the good news. yeah I finally found a Rhuemy who would take me even though I am changing pr and can't get a referral right now. I have a friend who's husband went to him, and he liked him. So I called but they couldn't get me in until the end of Sept. I told them i really needed a second opinion from my wantabe Rhuemy, and that my pain had changed. She asked what was going on so I told her(you will see below) and she said she would move things around. She did! I have an app. Aug 20th. My new pr. is Aug 23. Only problem is that they both are scheduled during the time I work. I just start back to school Aug.11. I hate missing work, but oh well i have to get to the bottom of this.
Now my gripe, I couldn't sleep at all last night.(sounds like a song..oh yeah,duh??)My shoulders and elbows were shooting the worse pain I have ever felt. I would lay one way and it would shoot from the joint up my arms then down. Right about the time it calmed a little my hands and feet joints started in. I finally got them to calm at 3:00 am redface Then my mouth was so dry i couldn't get enough to drink. Finally I dozed about 4 am and then the migraine started in, ugh. The alarm went off at 5, I hit snooze and had to call in to say I would be a little late..because everything was so stiff all i could do was lay there while my husband held the phone. Luckily my summer job is more layed back and they just required donuts to buy them off. smilewinkgrin   So these apps. are coming right in time, I hope. I hate to get my hopes up but maybe they will finally figure out what is going on with me. Thanks for letting me share. Have a pain free day!! turn Heather
