Hi, Beckey, and welcome! It sounds like your doctor was thorough but it's a shame he is that far away. Is that the closest rheumy to you? Of course, when you are in a flare there isn't a whole lot they can do. You can just wait it out, use moist heat, hot showers, stretching exercises, and keep moving. These do help some. I hope he gave you something if you were to have intense pain. I see a board certified Internist for my fibro and he has given me one prescription for Vicodin...just in case. I've never taked one but it's my safety blanket! LOL He had to renew the script because the pills got too old. I'll probably never take one but they sure give me peace of mind.
I'm glad you popped over here and joined our group. We have wonderful members who, as you have already seen, love to help one another. As a bonus, we really do care about each other, too. So, don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
