For 20 years I have been putting off my pain issues. Then they thought I had Lupus, so I figured it was time to see a specialist. Well no Lupus (thank heavens) but I have fibro. My pain has always been in my bones of my legs, arms, and neck. I have a lot of other health issues, so for me fibro was a relief. I now have a doc managing my pain issues, and am quite pleased with this doc. I have had some bad docs in the past.
The only thing I can say after 20 years of unbearable pain is find a good doc. Get the right meds. I have been on a hundred meds it seems like, but I finally feel better. I just don't want to become addicted to the oxycotin. But nothing else works.
I really believe finding a good doc is very important. I now have a cardiologist, neurologist, rheumatologist, not to mention primary care, and gyn. But I love everyone of my docs. They listen and make me feel like a human being.
I still have a bunch of test to go through over the next month, my hair is falling out, and I have a bunch of other symptoms. But my outlook is good, and I am full of hope. Even if I end up with no hair I intend to tackle life head on, at least that is how I feel today.
This looks like a great forum, and I look forward to reading other's experiences.
Does anyone else suffer from bone pain in thier legs and arms? Just wondering...
