I went to the rheumatologist on Monday and had a bunch of blood taken to rule out everything else so that the doc can make the right diagnosis. Everything came back normal except my levels of Vitamin D so they are calling in a script to my pharmacy. So that's good news and a step closer to what the doctor believes I'm suffering from, fibro. Soon I'll be able to start the Lyrica he's recommending and I hope the pain will start to subside.
Thanks for listening everyone!!

I'm glad vit D was the only thing that came back abnormal. I don't think I've ever had vit D checked. I had B12 checked. I will bring that up to new rheumy next week.
I hope the lyrica works for you.
luv and hugs

The Lyrica works for me and I hope it helps you.  My blood test also showed up a low level of vitamin D so I've been taking it for about 2 months. 
Hope you get to feeling better.
God Bless!

Taking vitamin D really does make you feel better. Mine was low and now I take 2000iu each day. I was taking 3000 at first. But I know that you will feel better and I wish you good luck with the lyrica also.

Best wishes for feeling better,

Hugs, Karen
