Hi Flappy and everyone I’m going to the dr follow up on the morning..
I’m just wondering what the dr is going to say . Bc, I brought up to them in my chart maybe I have Fibromyalgia..
Bcmsybe that’s why they couldn’t go on with my Rhyitzotomy procedure. I’m just not sure I’m just confused right now and just need my answers....
Ok let you all know some time tomorrow my appointment is in the morning...I guess I’m just tired of being tired and in pain with my leg spasms and back hurting is all ..
It’s just hmm to me ... My fiancé want me to go in and check it out tomorrow so I will ..
Hug gently to all Shore 🌈🙏🙏❤️❤️🤗 have a nice night

Hey Shore, I hope you do get your answers tomorrow. It took them 4+ years to diagnose me with fibromyalgia and another 18+ months to diagnose my Sjogrens. It typically can be years before getting an official diagnosis simply because so many diagnoses share multiple symptoms. So don't get discouraged if your doctor can't say for certain what is going on tomorrow. But dont give up looking and trying to figure it out either. Make sure you keep a log, of any symptoms & especially any changes that are sudden or out of the normal range for you, until (& after) you get diagnosed. I'm saying a prayer for you!

Coincidentally I read an article in a magazine a few weeks back, at my doctor's office, concerning the misdiagnosis of fibromyalgia. One diagnosis that has symptoms, which predominantly mimick fibromyalgia, is called Myofascial Pain Syndrome. I found the article interesting & wish I could remember the magazine, so I could look it up online & finish reading it. It mentioned other diseases in a diagram showing comparisons. The article stated that doctors have become impatient trying to find answers and have jumped on a bandwagon to assign fibromyalgia and place patients on meds that arent even helping. It made me wonder if fibro truly is my problem or if its something like the myofascial pain or another, because the meds for fibro really doesn't help me that much. I wonder...hmmm? I guess only time will tell. Hugs love & prayers for all!🙂💞❤🙏🌷
