My apologies for my posting falling off again, but things have been a bit rough lately. To sum things up: I am currently waiting for my latest bloodwork to come back to help determine whether I have Fibromyalgia or not. My rheumatologist already started me on my first medication, and I’m having some light-headedness as a side-effect. Hopefully that will decrease in intensity as my body adjusts- for now it is a practice in mindfulness to stay focused at work. In three weeks I will restart my anxiety meds (they didn’t want to make too many changes all at once).
To say the least I am frustrated and not terribly thrilled. I haven’t actually had a bloodtest come back positive with rheumatoid factors since I started seeing this new doctor, and a little voice in my head wonders if I was misdiagnosed at the beginning, seven years ago. I’m trying to not think about that too much, since that way lies madness; it’s quite possible (and likely) for my RA to be in remission and to still develop additional autoimmune diseases. Fun.
So now I’m brushing up on my fibro knowledge- I try to stay current with related treatments, so our attack plan is no surprise so far. I’ve actually been on this med before when we were diagnosing the neuro issues in my arms, which turned out to be cubital tunnel.
Mostly, right now, I’m disappointed. I’m having to set some things aside so that I can focus on my health, and at least of my goals may no longer be an option for me. It’s one thing to know that things Aren’t Quite Right- it’s entirely another to know that something is Wrong. I’ll get into more details later, but for now, please bear with me, and thanks for stopping by. I hope that you are all As Well As Possible *hugs*
