    I've had a flare all weekend so this morning I could barely walk, didnt sleep any last night..felt like I was laying on a boil. So I woobled in to docs office and my tremurs were so bad I could hardly stand up. I broke down and cried and explained I needed thses papers filled out for my work cause I cant even afford to get my perscrptions. Thank goodness she said she would fill out paperwork for me and put me on Skelaxin(muscle relaxer) and Bextra(inflammatory drug) and also put me on Mysoline for my tremurs per doc in cleveland. She orderd a stress test but since I cant do any of the activities I guess they do it by IV(not sure). She also said that the report from my echocardigram showed the back part of my heart is not working properly so I have an appt with heart doc. Maybe this is a beginning for me to get someone to believe what I'm going thru. As far as the rhuem doc who wouldnt fill out paperwork for me.I'm cancelling his appt. The way I see it why go to a doc who is not willing to help me.I also made my appt with counseler wed so maybe I can get rid of some stress. Thanks for listening all.

    you are fighting. Sorry for the pain--it's awful isn't it? Hope your tests in the future nail down exactly what's wrong! Get better, ya hear! God bless, Al

    a sympathetic dr. Many of us go to rheumies only b/c our "reg" drs either don't believe in what we have or feel unqualified to deal with it. It's much nicer to be able to stay w/ dr who knows your history much better than a specialist.

    On the other hand, so sorry you're in so much pain. Hope you feel better soon, & they find out exactly what's wrong. Keep us posted...Michele
