My pm diagnosed me with crps,went through a lot of injections and finally got some relief. A month later ( for that month I was doing great,even did pt 3x a week), I was again in the wheelchair,couldn’t carry my own weight. The pm doc wanted a second opinion,bcz he started to have doubts about crps. Saw a rheumatologist,who diagnosed me with fibro. Next month have app with a neurologist,I guess,he’ll be the one who will give a final diagnosis. My question is, can I develop fibro from the… read more
I don’t know if this will help, but there is now a blood test that proves wether or not you have fibromyalgia. No more guessing. No, well you have 11 of the 18 sights. I have forgotten it was so long ago but I do keep up on new meds. Ask for the blood test you deserve to know not be estimated. It is only a tiny amount of blood need from you.
Sending you lots of hugs 🤗 I can’t walk either, if I do manage to the bathroom,the way back is usually ends up crying. Be sure to tell all your symptoms,that will help the doctor rule out certain things. We all want our lives back but,unfortunately,that’s not going to happen,no matter what. How I realized that and started excepting this new form of my life, that’s how became a bit easier to manage mostly the pain. Don’t want to judge or give advice,everybody is different,only trying to explain how it’s works for me. The constant fight against even the thought of the fibro,made me mad,nervous and stressed,sometimes I was “ loosing it “. I read a lot about it,as much as I can, educating myself, it help to understand, this is my body, there is no escape from the pain. The painkillers hardly working, can’t get enough sleep,it’s all part of this awful disease. Yes,we all took everyday things granted, but learned to appreciate the little things. I would give everything,just to have my old “ me “ back, believe me,we all do.. To accept and learn to deal with it,that’s our mission.. Take care and give me updated as well..
@A MyFibroTeam Member, believe me or not, the rheumatologist said, there is no need to go back to her, because I have already taken those meds what she would have prescribed for me. Also, looking at me, sitting in my wheelchair, said, looks like, the meds are not working anymore but to change or up the dosage, is something what my primary or pm doctor needs to do. Next week I have a visit with my primary doctor, will ask her about that test. Was doing a little research and find it interesting that there is a connection between fibro and the digestion. I don’t have IBS, so only thing what left is the candida and leaky gut. Changed my eating habits, only been a few days, but already feel a little progress. Among other things, I want to discuss this possibility with my primary doctor and will ask about this blood test. Thanks for the useful information! Have a good day and be safe! 🤗
Where I went to do it (in Long beach,ca) it cost 300 per visit but maybe you can get insurance to cover it?
