Update. Finally after begging for a year my new pcp got me set up with rhematoid doc. I seen yesterday and thank god cause night before was one of worst nights ever. My entire body flared up to point I was unable to move or walk without gut wrenching pain. Head to toe. Only one other time that has happened which was few months ago and I ended up in er. So specialist said he thinks could be either fibromyalgia or possibly psoriasic arthritis. Did more blood work and ordered xrays of hands. Every single day the pain is in my hands. Diff sports throughout the day and by evening time it's unbearable. Huge symptom also have is unbelievable fatigue and I think chronic fatigue syndrome goes hand in hand with fibromyalgia? I was told to follow up in Teo weeks he gave me literature on fibromyalgia and wants me to indicate when I see him next if this sounds like what I have he also said to follow up with my primary care doctor regarding treating the pain which I thought was interesting but I guess the specialist cannot treat me and so is a hundred percent certain what I have. My question is what do others on the sites that have these conditions treated with for pain? I've read that dr tend not to treat with pain meds which blows my mind because only way I can function at all is with hydros from my pcp. Alot is said online and scared me reading thst fibromyalgia has such a negative stigma. Like its "not a real condition" doesn't help that I work in disability and fmla and in thst world no one I work with takes fibro seriously. I wouldn't feel comfortable telling anyone I work with that I may have this because I will be labeled. It's horrible to already be dealing with so much then on top to be treated like a joke in medical community, like a drug seeker, then also in general because the stigma. Anyone else deal with this? What meds have worked/not worked? Thanks to you all in this community everytime I post I feel great knowing not alone.
