So. Went to see my Rheumatologist today.

Apparently they think I might have Fibromyalgia instead of the RA. Which is good in the sense that my joints won’t explode.

Pain is sitting at a 7. In a great mood though. Happy Imbolc! Will be taking a nap before work. Will update later.

Mini Update

So here’s just a little update before I go to work. My head hurts, hehe. Laying down resulted on no sleep but some easing of joint pain. My theory on my diagnosis is that I have RA at least in my hands and my knees, and the Fm would account for a lot of my other symptoms. Going to get referred to an Rheumatologist that a good friend went to for a second opinion. And possibly get referred to a pain specialist like my sister in law.

UPDATE

Work made me tired and sore. But it was a good day overall. Glad it’s over. But now I have to open tomorrow. Which sucks. But then I have Friday off. Going to take some meds in the hopes that I can sleep better than I have been lately.

Pain: 7-8

Mood: 7

Meds: 4 x Tylenol Arthritis, 3 x Super Motrin, 1 x Gravol

Supplements: most

Diet: hot dog with ketchup, 2 cookies, ginger ale, water, 6 clementines/tangerines, 1 apple, 1 cinnamon scone, 1 turkish roll, 2 fresh dates
