Cool Finally!!!!

Well, I finally got dx'd. My doctor says he thinks its FMS. Yea! Er, well, anyway, it's so wonderful to finally know. He's setting me up with a rhumerologist soon. Havn't got the appoint yet but should hear something tommorrow. So, now I can say I'm officially one of you guys.

You would not believe how good it feels to finally have a diagnosis under my belt. 2 decades of suffering, 6 years of horrific pains that no one belived in but me and you guys. Now I can snub my nose at the nay sayers and the hurtful jerks who swore to me that its' all in my head. Doc told me today that the test he did on me to determine "inflamation" registered a 6 on me, and normal is less than 1. Started me on new pain med, that I can't remember the name of right now, but it's already helping loads. Thanks for letting me spew, and thanks to all of you for giving me hope and information for the last couple of months.

Re: Finally!!!!

Hi Ishla:

I've been in your shoes. Doesn't it feel better to know what is wrong rather than not knowing?!! Now you can move forward with your newfound knowledge which now empowers you. Everyone on this board can relate to your struggle.

Re: Finally!!!!

I know exactly how you feel Ishla. For years I suffered in pain and previous dr really did nothing. People I worked with didn't believe anything was wrong with me. I even had to deal w/ hubby thinking I was milking it and didn't really feel as bad as I claimed. But last June, I was dxed, I cried when the rheumy told me I had fibro. He didn't seem surprised and said most women cry from relief, simply because we now know we are not imagining everything and really have a problem. (He has very few male patients and almost all of them are arthritis.)
