That time of the month - exacerbation of pain?
Anyone else deal with this? It seems like, well, right before good 'ol mother nature comes for a visit, my pain intensifies greatly. That's how I usually know she's on the way. It's usually only 2 days before.. but this time it's lasted 4 days and still no crampy feeling or anything going on.
Makes me wonder if my pain has anything to do with hormones.. or at least maybe the hormonal change during this time somehow makes things worse? SOMETHING is making it worse. I can't help but think they're connected.
I have my follow-up appt. with the meaniehead Rheumy Monday. I'll get my bloodwork back. Hopefully something will show up. The main thing is the darn ANA test (AGAIN) to see if that's negative (AGAIN).. then maybe Lupus will be ruled out. Of course I have tons of Lupus symptoms as well as Fibro.. the rashes, but not on my face, mouth ulcers, a few other things.
Gahhhhhhh. At least my hubby will be with me this time. He doesn't take any **** from doctors. He's MUCH more vocal than I am and if the Rheumy says ANYTHING about depression, he'll put him in his place real darn quick!
Ok, anyway, back to the original question.. anyone else?
