Re: Nancy Jones a reply to your question!

Glojer -

Thank you so much for the detailed response. I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother, it's sad that doctors didn't know then as much as they do now. However I feel there is a long way to go, since they still are unable to diagnose so many things. Fibro and CTD primarily.

I go to a Fibro doctor who said that a test is currently being developed to test for Fibro and it will most likely be in the form of a spinal tap - yikes! Not sure when it will be available but it will be interesting to know how many people it weeds out from a Fibro diagnosis. Then, what are those people to do that don't test positive. Back on the doctor merry go round.

I am doing fine, some days are better than others. Most of my pain feels nerve related, not flu-like or muscular. I don't have any problems with sleep or energy. I'm currently taking Cymbalta which has helped a little. I really want to focus on exercise however time is the issue.

Take care and hope you are feeling a little better!
