Three years ago I went to the Dr with this pain and stiffness in my ankles, toes, amd wrist. I was told it was fibromyalgia and to go home and exercise. A few months later I had these nodules come up on my toes which sent me to this other Dr. that called it hammertoes and he did surgery and cut them out. They never healed which sent me back to surgery for them to put tiny plates and screws in my toes to hold them together. (By the way he told me hammertoes are caused by high heals something I told him I do not wear.) It's been three years now and I have always had that stiffness but the pain kept getting worse and I now have more nodules on the top and sides of my feet. I went back to the foot Dr. and he said he thought I have RA. So back to the first dr that gave me the fibro dx. Now after more test yep its RA! All he said was take this stuff call placqunell (sp) and that's just about
I have Kaiser and we only have one dr that treats RA. I'm am a very active person. I have to be. I have 8 kids as our oldest dies in 2010 and we adopted our grand kids. I MUST keep up with them! Up until a month ago I worked out three times a week. Now every time I do I feel bad! This pain is bad.
So I guess what I am asking is what do I have to look forward to????? The dr made it sound like it just your joints even when I told him I am so tired. I feel like I am having so much anxiety. Is all this normal?? Should I work past the pain and keep it up? Will it make we worse? And what about
that medicine? I read the print out they gave me at the drug store. It could do all kinds of stuff to you.....
HELP!!! Im only 51!!! I should not feel like this!!
