Waiting for the results.... What is wrong with me?
I have been having terrible aching pain since about June.... So, it's been over 6 months. My whole body aches, my joints and muscles hurt, I'm getting headaches all the time, my armpits are sore, my eyes hurt, shoulders, toes, fingers, etc, etc, etc. My GP mentioned lupus, so she sent me to a rheumatologist. He took a bunch of blood work to test, and I will see him in the next few days for results. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It's really getting worse. It used to be maybe two days a week, now it's everyday, all day. Ibuprofen does not help anymore. I was given Vicodin. It helps, but wears off within a few hours. I'm also having bad chest pains (costrochodritis). I'm irritable and in pain so much. Don't know what to do while I wait.... Any helpful comments are appreciated.
