Thanks for the advice! Yeah, I will keep after the doctors. Because I already had to "fire" one, so I learned to be cautious. Also, as far as the sun is concerned, I try to avoid the sun. I'm not an outdoors person (camping, tanning, swimming at the beach) but I do go to the park with my two kids, so I need to do that early so the hottest part of the day I can be at home, or inside a mall or library, or whatever. Thanks for the advice and support!
Yes, you are the VA girl! I remember! Well, I'm just glad I got a diagnosis, because I was beginning to question my mattress, since the first rheumy wasn't particularly concerned. (And my mattress is high quality good stuff because my husband has back problems and made sure we got a top of the line mattress).... But, yep, we are in the DOUBLE WHAMMY club. Hopefully we both can get the proper care we need. I know you have been dealing with this way longer than me, so I may use your wealth of knowledge to help me out!
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.
Hope you are doing well..... Can't remember where you live, but hopefully you are in part of the country that recognizes SPRING, because we are still in winter, but apparently Spring will start tomorrow..... Anywhooo.....
I finally got a diagnosis from my Rheumy. I have lupus + fibromyalgia. I am quite satisfied with this Doc. She seems very knowledgeable and informative. She was very thorough as opposed to the other rheumy that I saw. So, that;s where I am. I still have to see what ailing my stomach. But, at least now, I have a real diagnosis. No more guessing and wondering. Now it's time to take action and get better!
Let me know where you stand in your diagnosis and health!
