Fibro w/ Inflammation and heat?

i was dx tues. with fibro. i don't feel the rheumy heard me out and understood the full list of symptoms.

the reason i feel this way, i last night had a massage and the RMT told me I have numerous sites of inflammation and heat. one being my si joint.

from what i've read, i understood fibro was not consistent with joint inflammation and heat....i also constantly have low grade fever. nodules or lumps up my thigh along a tendon or something.

Hi Bopper,

Did the rheumy order any labwork, and did you point out your lumpies?

Re: Fibro w/ Inflammation and heat?

rheumy did not order bloodwork. i have had numerous rounds of bloodwork and those results were available to him through my GP.

i didn't point out the lumpy things. i kinda froze honestly when i got in his office. he was intimidating and not very open. definately not a great communicator.

i'm wondering however, if heat and inflammation are consistent with fibro. i have read that they are not.
