I've been in a lot of pain lately, every issue I have is flared up at the moment especially arthritis, migraine & w.e else is wrong with me on top of a yucky cold. I just got a call from my doctors office this morning to tell me that the ruematologist I'm supposed to see in a week had to cancel, the earliest appointment they can get me is with another ruematologist but not till Dec 28, I'm also seeing a neurologist on dec 19, I just hope I can make it til then mentally I'm getting really exhausted I keep freaking out that on top off all my other issues there's something really wrong.
This Wednesday I'm seeing my orthopedist for cortisone injections in my wrists for the carpal & im gonna tell him about the swelling in my one wrist & my issues w/ my hand locking up, but last time I saw him he seemed confused about the locking & how it gets worse when it rains I know he's gonna tell me to see a ruematologist which I already am but it's in a month, idk I've been dealing with this for years I don't know why I'm being so weak about waiting another month. It's just all my other issues like my neck & shoulder & tmj it's all just too much sometimes!
My PTSD & TMJ are also a little outta control too so I just feel sometimes like I'm drowning. I also get twitching in my jaw & neck sometimes that I don't know if it's contributed to that or if it's something else like MS? Or who knows, sorry guys I'm having a freak out moment.
I have to see a follow up with psychiatrist on dec 15 that I'm dreading. The first consultation was extremely hard for him, I told him I've been on xanax for years but my anxiety & PTSD still outta control. He wanted to lower my xanax a little & put me on Zoloft as well, I explained to him that a couple of my old doctors wanted me to go on cymbalta to help the pain & anxiety, as well as my new doc thinks it would be a good idea to go on cymbalta & see a ruemy, when I was telling him that he was like what? No, no that would raise your blood pressure. When I told him some of my story of the abuse I finally excaped from on top of my health issues he almost seemed to me like in shock or i don't even know he just wasn't reactionary at all to the point I was thinking is he freaked out or does he not want to freak me out or does the guy think I'm nuts! I left, have decided not to take the Zoloft & was gonna wait to see what ruematologist & Nuero first but NOW have to see them after so can't even go tell him what those docs had to say. On top of the fact that it's freaks me out to think a man will be in control of my med for PTSD & it really scares me. I called & tried to get it switched to a female but none had openings till late 2018. I mean I even had to wait a year to get a slot in with this guy, I just didn't know how freaked out I'd get. My female therapist said to try to give the guy another chance given my sitatuok
Hi, my name is Marie. I've a newcomer to the forum. I have fibromyalgia after being diagnosed with lupus 20 years ago. In my youth, I struggle keeping the lupus stable, but lately as I grow older, it is fibromyalgia flaring that I find difficult to control. Is there a particular diet that I should take to avoid fibro flaring because I just eat anything that I find appealing? Are there particular...
