I saw my rheumy today for my four month check up and I've got another diagnosis! nono
 
Along with being diagnosed with SLE, Raynaud's, Degenerative Disc and Facet Disease, Carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety and depression, now I've been told I have fibromyalgia! shocked skull
 
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired! mad
 
He's worried about my kidneys so I had another urinalysis test. They'll call me in a few days to give me the results.
 
I told him I lost my job and had been flaring for three months. He said that will do it. :-S
 
He told me I must not stop seeing him and that they would work it out with me moneywise. I almost cried with his kindness.
 
I'm not feeling my name lately....

Hi Joy,

Hang in there!!!!! Thankfully, your doctor is supportive and kind. That should help to alleviate some of the stress in your life.

I'm sorry, Joy. I have Fibromyalgia too and it is very hard for me to tell the difference sometimes.
I'm glad your doctor will work with you. Have you heard anything from your disability yet?

I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time! I think we can all (unfortunately)identify with being sick & tired of being sick & tired. Thank God for docs like yours & mine though! Good luck with your test results. I hope things start to look up for you really soon!!
Lots of love,
DQueen

I turned my paperwork for private disability in last week. So far no news.
I wonder if I should send them the paperwork for the new diagnosis also?

I'm just frustrated today.........

I added everything that was wrong with me to my disability paperwork but told them only the rheumatologist was putting me on disability at this time. I haven't heard anything yet about mine either. They have till August 10 to settle the appeal. If they deny me again I am going to get a lawyer to help.

Hang in there about the new diagnosis. Just take one day at a time.

Hello Joy,

I just read your latest post and I'm so sorry. When it rains it pours! Not fair. I didn't realize you could be diagnosed with Lupus and Fibromyalgia at the same time....WOW! What next?

Hold your head up and hang in there. Seems like you have a really nice doctor.

I go back on Aug 3. No diagnosis yet. I'm so anxious/scared, etc....I've missed several days of work lately...hope I can hang.

You take care & God speed...

Cynthia
