Yesterday I called the rheumotologist and said I couldn’t stand the pain and needed to be seen immediately.  Today, the theumotologist told me that I was presenting with neurological symptoms...not fibromyalgia.  WHAT??  That’s new.
So of course a complete and total meltdown followed. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I went to work for the sole purpose of picking up my laptop and going home...ran into my boss...verbal and emotional vomit spewed forth...then headed home. Geez Louise. I swear I must be insane!
Everyone has the answers. Everyone thinks their theory is the correct one. What I would really like is for someone to shut the hell up, let me spew forth with tears, emotions and whatever else happens and don’t try to diagnos or cure me. I don’t need more vitamins at this point. I already know I’m over stressed. Yes, I know I need to learn how to handle stress and exercise and see a therapist and get a new job and eat better and get more sleep and pray and surrender and hope. I heard all of that today. I also heard that I could have a brain tumor, lupus, MS, adrenal failure, alignment problems (do I need an oil change too), and stress overload. Wow - you people are geniuses. I guess I don’t need any doctors with all these people around me. I know....people care and are concerned...
So in the meantime, I’ll wait for my blood test results (either Thursday or Tuesday) and hope for some answers.  Maybe at some point there will be a diagnosis out there that makes sense and can be treated.
