    Saw the rheumy this morning. My last labs were normal, so the diagnosis is fibro. I feel awful today. I worked 60 hours last week (took lots of Ultram). Today its cold and rainy and I hurt all over. The doc told me to quit working so much and get my rest. Easier said than done. I did come home early today though. I'm glad to finally have a definitive diagnosis. I feel like I can move forward now.

    Hi Diricha...

    Do you feel relieved?
    I was diagnosed in may, however after the doctor said the word, and I found out what it meant, he never wanted to discuss it with me....he has decided there is nothign he can do for me
    So finally I got him last week to get me an referral for a Rhuematologist too
    So my first appt is Dec 5th
    I am just exhausted all the time...

    But I just want to make sure of WHAT I had in 1980 I was diagnosed with Rhuematoid Arthritis...so I want an update if you know what i mean

    Feel free to email me...ladyscarlett@yahoo.com
    if you need a friend...I run a support group for Fibro andhave quite a few ladies...and always room for more

    Much Love LadyScarlett
