Okay, my name is Julie, and I live in Virginia. I work as a CNA at a nursing home, which I love!! It has brought me to realize that I definately want to pursue my LPN degree.
I have two girls, one 13 and one 3. I am married to the love of my life for 10 years, we've been together for 18 years.
I have always had fatigue issues and aches that people would say, "you have more aches and pains than an old person", but now it has gotten so bad that I am on Ultram, Flexeril, Lyrica, and Levothyroxine (for my Hypothyroidism). I also have endometriosis and seasonal allergies.
I have had a ton of tests, MRI's, CT scans, X-rays, Ultrasounds, been to a ...well there goes the Fibrofog, I can't seem to remember the term for the Dr. who deals with MS. NEUROLOGIST! Both locally and at a University Hospital about 60 miles away. I've been in and out of the emergency room, had tons of blood tests and everything comes back negative. I am scheduled for a visit to the Rheumatologist on March 13, which is the earliest they could get for me, because they only have one in the area!! (He must be a busy man).
If you want to know something I didn't cover, I have no problem sharing it, my life is an open book. I hope to get the rheumatologist to diagnose me so I can move forward.
