So, I had my appointment with the rheumatologist today. Very personable guy. I felt like he listened and was sincere. He said I'm somewhere on the scale of chronic pain to fibromyalgia depending on the amount of pain I'm having. He said it's really all the same when it comes down to it. He suggested backing off on the amount of activity I do. I explained to him that I have to work and did he have any suggestions on how to handle that better. He said, "You can do whatever you want, but you're going to end up paying for it later." Also told me I have very hyperextended joints and to never do yoga lol He said he was mystified by the "muscle weakness" I was having bc my muscles seem to be strong. I then tried to explain better by telling him that my muscles tire extremely quickly causing them to burn and shake like I've been weight lifting but while doing simple activities, such as laundry. He said he would assume it comes from the muscles being in pain or under stress and needing a break. Thing is that I don't necessarily have pain in the areas that are tiring. Having a hard time following him on that piece of it but think I understand his correlation. Overall, a good visit with a doctor I like and I feel like I could come see him again without judgement if things get worse. He ordered blood work but they only do the specific labs he ordered Monday through Thursday so I'll have to come back on Monday. I am currently waiting for a neck x-ray to rule out arthritis.
