I have been dealing with chronic pain issues for about 5 years. At first it was thought I had rupus. I had a horrible time during my pregnancy. I was told to go off my meds---plaquenil at the time--by my old rheumatologist . The pain was unbearable. My fingers and toes turned into hot dogs. After 3 years of mismanaged treatment, I finally got enough courage to see a new doc. I've been seeing him for 6 months now and think he's great. He just diagnosed me with fibro. Turns out I don't test positive for any other auto-immune disorder. I think I have RA due to the swelling and change in my joints. He disagrees. I currently take methotrexate. When he tries to wean me off of them, I start having all kinds of problems with my hands. I don't know. Anyway, now that you have my background, here's the real issue. I am married and my hubby has decided recently that he "doesn't want to hear me whine and complain anymore." The biggest problem is that I am not complaining...I am just trying to communicate with him. My therapist suggested I join a support group, but there are few to none available in Indy. I am about to give up. I really need some people to talk to about this. Can anyone help me?
