Went to my rheumatologist today and got the results from all my blood work. I don't have Lupus, Lyme Disease or Non-Hodgkins Disease. I have gotten a definite answer that I do have Fibromyalgia. Never did have a for sure answer till now. He said that everything that has been happening to me isn't all in my mind. He said it is hard for everyone else who doesn't have this to understand it cause you don't look sick. He said it's like trying to explain the color red to a blind person. It's real I also got told that I now have Hashimoto's Disorder which is causing me my problems with my jaw and ear and throat problem. I will continue to have that off and on. He said my thyroid antibody was 450. I also now have neuropathy in my right hand and have osteoarthritis in my right pinky. That is what is causing the numbness in my pinky.
