 I just don't know where to go anymore. First I have a high posative ANA The Doc says he thinks I have Fibro and my 3rd ANA was negative, Yesterday My ANA was positve again so He says I quite possibily have both.

If you haven't seen a Rheumatologist, you might want to do that. I was bumped around within my GP, spine doc, wrist doc, hip doc, derm, pain management . . . until FINALLY someone here shared that we should be seeing a Rheumy. These auto-immune diseases are so tricky and the Rheumy is the one who is trained to differentiate and treat them.

The Rheumy is the one I'm talking about. He already diagnosed me with fibro now he says I quite possibly have lupus too but you know how that is a waiting game pretty much. What makes me so mad is neither my pc doctor or my Rheumy will give me sleeping pills or pain pills. I can not sleep at night. He gave me tylonol 4's JOKE I took 2 and was up for hours later it didn't touch the muscle pain at all! neither does tramadol. I told them I am not a druggy if I wanted it my husband gets 180 vicodines a month and he throws what he doesn't use away every month. My husband can't understand why I won't take his instead of rolling around on the floor in pain but they aren't mine! ya know? My husband got so upset at the doctor that he threatened to get me street drugs LOL
