Well I went to the doctors today. After complaining about pain for ~13 years now, I was told that I do have FM; but,the insurance may not cover it without a Rumatologist signature for either Lyrica or Cymbalta in which are very expensive. I know because my hubby takes lyrica for his MD pains with CMT and it is 297.00/month. Sorry for the miss spellings. Sigh. If I had to pay that on top of my other 14 meds it would our total to over way over $1000.00/ month. Sigh
Anyhow, she is running a ton of bld work. Ordered a MRI of my spine, Mammogram, Ultra sound of thyroid (due to it feeling enlarged/ possible goiter), and Bone density study.
For my notes; while I was in there I got a Boostrix/adacel, and my third Hepatitis B booster.
After I get all of this stuff done I will then report back in a month in which she wants a yearly gyno exam in which I haven't had for years.
I really wanted a referral to a pain specialist; but she thinks a rumatologist would be best. I just want some relief!!!!!!!!! I can't shampoo the carpets w/o being in massive pain for a week or so after. Not to mention moping the floors. It's destroying me. Urgggg Grrrrrrr. I already have a fatty liver and my only relief is alcohol from the pains. Sigh.
Hopefully they can find a answer this time. Fingers and toes crossed. :-)
