Yes, I have a rheumy, after years of suffering I have a great one. I have not been diagnoesed with Lupus, years ago, my gynecologist suggested that I had it after reviewing tests she had requested based on an illness I suffered with during my second pregnancy. I ignored her request to find a rheumy, and only now after 15 years, am starting to believe I have something more than fibro and arthritis. I take savella for fibro, and turmeric ( doctor prescribed from compounding pharmacy) for joint pain. The combo works fairly well to resolve pain, but do not stop it or my flares completely. Yes, I am documenting all of this because I believe I will eventually have to go on SSDI, especially after this last flare. It's also become apparent that my co-workers know something is wrong, so hiding it is not working. I have been offically diagnosed with Fibromyalgia- CFS and psoratic arthritis.
I thank you for your response. I am grateful for this forum.
