    Saw the phystherapist or whatever he is, at our big Ortho office, yesterday. He didn't ask alot about my symptoms,(although I casually kept mentioning about the dry eyes, dizziness, etc) other than he was very interested in the trigger points, he examined me all over and said yes I definately have the pain, and he asked about sleep and exercise. So his impression is I need to sleep better and get a little more exercise. He is also running a bunch of blood tests to rule out Thyroid of R.A. And then I go back in 3 weeks to see him. He gave me Flexeril to take 1-2 at night, so I might sleep better. He said I need a good 7 hours sleep.I took one but it didn't help, so guess I will try 2 tonight.He was mostly concerned with my trigger points and sleep problems.

    Does this all sound right for first visit?
