So a few days ago I posted in another thread about
fitting PLDS to a T and joking about
"Fibromyalgia Type 2." So get this, I went to see another rheumy the other day because my GP and I were concerned about
my ability to get tendinitis at the drop of a hat and wanted to rule out progressive and bad things.
The rheumy was nice enough. Ordered more blood work. Prescribed me a pain reliever. And said that if the blood work didn't point to any progressive and bad things, I would have an official diagnosis of...wait for it....fibromyalgia
How I feel right now can match how fibro is diagnosed, I can see that. But still, I fit PLDS to a T. But that still ain't a thing, apparently.
But fibro is a real diagnosis, so I guess I'll take it. And sit myself quietly in the controversial camp of Lyme "causing" fibro.
I'm going to still do herbal treatment, don't worry. Not seeing an LLMD right now because I know I have(had) Lyme and not interested in doing a lot of antibiotics right now. I'm spending the $$$ on ordering supplements instead and doing self-care.
But yeah, if I can't get PLDS in my medical file no one can. Seriously. This is crazy.
