I am about to go crazy with all this pain. My doctor ordered a lab test for RA two weeks ago and that came back negative..which was good...then, I went to the walk-in clinic last Friday because of all the pain and they took more blood and today I got the results and they are all negative..which again, is good...but, it doesn't explain the pain. They were thinking that it was my cholesterol meds and had me stop them last weekend, but everything came back normal. The lab tests they took were CMP, CPK (i think), and hormone levels (had a total hysterectomy one year ago). I don't understand, though, because the nurse is trying to tell me that the cholesterol med might still be causing the pain, but I am thinking no since the liver enzyme test came back normal. Now, my doctor is referring me to a rheumatologist which is good, but what do I do for the pain in the meantime?? I am so tired of not being able to exercise how I want to and I am only 33 years old! I am just worn out!
Does anyone recommend tests I should request the rheumy to run? Thanks for listening to me
