I am 59, and for several decades I have been receiving treatment for my Fibromyalgia. Through the years I kept getting worse as far as pain, fatigue, memory issues, weakness and depression. I kept assuming it was just Fibromyalgia. But then I went to a different Rheumatologist, two years ago, who diagnosed me with RA along with Fibromyalgia. I had to quit working in late 2018 and this was hard for me emotionally because I have always been a self-sufficient person working in the human services field helping others with developmental disabilities.
Now my RA doctor has been trying different medications to help me. Currently I am taking Humira injections every two weeks along with the eight other meds I take for Fibromyalgia. I also take an Amovig injection once a month for migraines and Omeprozol for GERD. I just feel so alone. Like no one understands. What issues or body parts the RA doesn't affect, the Fibromyalgia does. Few days are good days anymore, and I just feel so helpless even though my RA doctor tells me we will find the right meds. Maybe I'm just feeling sorry for myself. This is a bad day.
