Thanks for the response Lynwood
I will ask the dr at my next visit about
sending me to a rheumatologist. I am fearful that in this city that's really a one horse town when it comes to medical needs I will have to see the internist to pass go and collect a referral for the rheumatologist.
I ve checked the symptoms but its sketchy whats caused by what and whats related to what. I have fatigue, headaches (dr says its a side effect of med), elbow joint pain (dr says its related to the surgery in the area), some hair loss and thinning of forehead but it seems to go in cycles (not large patches just a lot of hair seems to come out dr says that's just getting old, I'm 39), back ache on the left side (that doesn't seem to be relieved by anything- never brought this up with the dr I feel defeated and deflated going and complaining about
the same things over and over), anemic (cant get number up despite taking supplements- dr doesn't appear to be worried about
this), tightness in the feet and ankles like there is fluid retention but feet ankles are swollen where I cant wear my shoes (reaction to gabapentin according to drs).
