After waiting a full month to see my rheumy about all this arthritis/lupus/fibro/who knows what the heck this is, I have my appoiintment tomorrow afternoon. I've never been so relieved and eager to see a doctor in my life.
I've been posting a lot on the arthritis forum this past month to 6 weeks. So much of what I'm dealing with is pointing towards arthritis, or even RA. My toes have started to deform on one foot. This new symptom showed up last weekend. My joints are red, swollen and very painful. The foot issue is a continuing nightmare. The pain hasn't let up for 3 months now. I'm just exhausted by all this. My neck and back are really bad too.
I could really use some prayers. Not necessarily for healing, but for answers and a strong progressive course of action to find out what I'm dealing with.
I'll keep you posted as to what I learn tomorrow. Thanks everyone,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
