Anyone from San Diego - trouble getting proper diagnosis
Hi. Is anyone else from San Diego? I've been to 2 uncaring, incompetent Rheumy's so far and was wondering if anyone knew of a good Rheumy out here. I'm not sure yet if I have Fibro. Here are my symptoms: TMJ, headaches, muscle and joint pain, insomnia, etc. I also have pain in my fingers, toes, elbows sometimes. I don't have fatigue like most other sufferers seem to have. Does this sound like Fibro? I take Flexeril before bed and Bextra in the am. The Bextra helps my arthritis pain, but does nothing for my TMJ and the Flexeril doesn't even help me sleep. Every morning I wake up with soreness. Sometimes my right hip and lower back ache so bad that it's hard to get out of bed and get moving. I'm also menopausal for good measure!!!!!! One of the Rheumy's told me that Fibro doesn't affect the hands, but others have told me that it can!!! Anyone?
