Been trying to keep moving as the doctor recommended. Seems to be helping the Fibro, making it easier to pinpoint the joints that bother me and when they do. Hips, the left being worse than the right a lot of the time, the second “knuckle” of my right big toe, both spots radiate outwards. This is when I’m walking. I start to limp pretty fast. Hips hurt pretty equally when sitting or standing for any length of time. Knees will throb also when walking. Sonetimes the ankles. Hands of course, right wrist has been of particular concern, bought an elastic type “brace” for when it acts up. The upper back, into the spine, radiates out across the shoulders and underneath them, neck is stiff and painful. Need some masage I figure to loosen the pressure on the nerves. Been a bit of a rough week.

Updated Diagnosis as of April 16th, 2013

Confirmed Fibromyalgia.

Confirmed mild Inflammatory Arthritis, undetermined kind as of yet, more than likely Psoriatic.

Partially confirmed Connective Tissue Disease, positive blood test, physical symptoms still minimal, sort of a “hurry up and wait” on this one, need to wait for more symptoms to appear.

Went to my GP today to refill my Lyrica prescription. We both agreed that my dose should be bumped up to three 75mg pills a day. It was rainy and cold and I had to wait 45min for my prescription to be filled. My hips are killing me. Strangely enough I’m still up and cooking. Will be heading to bed shortly. OH! And my GP actually said out loud that I have Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. We will see what the specialist has to say on the 16th. It’s funny how getting a real diagnosis makes me happy.
