After months of wondering, I was finally diagnosed today with FM. I have been in constant pain for about two years, and it has just gotten worse as time went on. I work full time in retail doing mostly stocking so that is very painful for me. I am so exhausted after work that I just want to go to bed. My husband thinks I am lazy, but I kept telling him I knew there was something wrong with me. My regular dr. isn't much help at all. He just prescribes me stuff for my pain, depression and anxiety. I tried going to an orthopedic specialist this summer. He just gave me cortisone shots in both knees and said to come back if I still had pain. I didn't go back to him. A friend recommended the dr. that I saw today, she is a reumitologist (spelled wrong, I know) and she told me I have FM. But she also suspects that I have some form of arthritis too because some of my symptoms are not FM related, she feels there is a 50/50 chance something else is wrong. I had lots of ex-rays and blood work. Now it is two weeks of waiting to find out. I am very nervous about what she will say when I go back. Currently I am on Lexapro and Xanax for the depression and anxiety and Lodine for the inflamation and pain. She told me I could up my Lodine because my dose is very low. But if I do that and run out the pharmacy won't refill it because it will be too early so I am not sure what I will do. I was wondering what medications others are taking. And, how do people cope with work and pain. I could just cry and sometimes scream from the pain it is so bad but I have to work unless the dr. would tell me otherwise because I have bills that need paid. I have insurance that would pay them in the event I would be told to quit for my health but right now I have no choice but to work in pain everyday. The dr. didn't say too much today other than the diagnosis. I think she is waiting for the test results so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
