Need help before I see rhuemy
Hi, going to see rheumy again on wedensday and need your help. I accept I have fibro but have always felt something else was going on. My previous rheumy felt I had undifferenciated connective tissue disease(spelling?) and that RA,lupus or something similar was going to show up in bloods at some stage. Sadly he died, and while the new rheumy is good he is not as easy to talk to and I feel that he thinks the previous rheumy was wrong. I have appt on wednesday and I am going to write down every symptom and show it too him. My own doctor also feels something is going on and has just run tests for lymes I will
have the results tomorrow.
What I would like answers on is are any of the following
symptoms not due to fibro.
Severe joint pain in neck,shoulders elbows,hands,hips knees and feet.
Stiffness in the mornings lasting for about 1hour
Sensitivity to light both artificial and sunlight
Migraines and headaches that can last days
Anemia iron pills have not been effective am now on iron injections
Muscle spasms mainly in upper back
Pins and needles and a feeling that something is crawling under my skin
Stabbing pains that can have me yelp out loud, only last for a second but very severe pain.
Cognitive impairment, forget things, can't remember words on occasions
ESR and CRP sometimes raised but not always
Any help here would be appreciated, sometimes I feel like I am going mad.
