we may finally be making some headway. Turns out that I have now been "officially" diagnosed with fibromyalgia after my office visit today with a very well respected rheumatologist at OSU. He had a lot of blood drawn while I was there to see if there's anything more going on (ie, connective tissue disease). So while NOT what I wanted to hear, is giving me answers, and hopefully I will continue to head in the right direction of getting all my curious maladies uncovered, diagnosed and properly treated. So while not what I wanted to hear, does give me something to hang my hat on.
Will have to eat crow next time I see my PCP because he's been trying to tell me I had it, but stubborn me has refused to accept it as it seems like one of those diagnoses they just don't know how to treat...heck, they're not even sure what causes it! So, when I see him next time I will have to
to his expertise. I'm sure we'll have an interesting discussion
He's a great guy so I'm sure he'll be rubbing it in for some time.
