Thanks, Joan. I found out the cause for my terrible pain yesterday. I now have fibromyalgia to add to my list. I had always heard it was really painful, believe me, it is. I start on Lyrica next Wednesday and it's supposed to make me extremely sleepy and I have to build up the doses. So I'm trying to work through the pain between now and then and get as many things done as I can
I had dinner with my grandchildren tonight. I had not seen them in seven weeks because I had been so sick. I guess I'll be visiting the fibro forum now. I have a lot to learn. I did diagnose myself though and then had my PCP refer me to a specialist.
