| | Medication Advise.. untolerable pain
Hi, still waiting for my Rheumy appointment for Sept. 25th. I haven't done an ANA test in a while but it was 1:2560 the last time. I have been treated for Thyroid, did not test positive for the antibody.
My pain originated in my calves, with daily cramping and felt like ice picks stabing them. This was SEVERE. Since taking Neurton 3 times a day and Soma 1 to 2 times some days none, just depends (and I do take Vit. D, Potassium, and multi, Glucosamine, Chondrotin, MSG, 5/500 Viacon for pain 2 times a day, low dose asprin, Diclofenac, Armor Thyroid.
I have what I would consider the worse tendonitis in wrist, elbow and shoulder. So bad, that cutting the arm actually sounds like a viable option.. okay maybe not.. but man it hurts beyond words. I can't sleep because it requires lying down and that affects the shoulder the most.
My tests are not screaming any particular ailment, but suspecting a connect tissue issue.
Any suggestions of meds that might help me.. please suggest. It seems forever before I get to see the specialist.
Calves started January 2012, shoulder/wrist/elbow started June 25th (yes, I keep a journal every day!) It is like the disease it attacking my tendons & muscles not joints.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
