A New Development???


Asking for thoughts, vibes, prayers (whatever your choice of worship is) for an appointment of mine coming up.

I was at the neurologist for my migraines last Thursday and she is having me see a rheumatologist on the 14th which is Monday. She thinks I might have developed fibromyalgia which can happen after intense physical trauma like I went through in January with my bad allergic reaction to Topamax. I’m in pain all over all the time and I’ve developed other issues since then which fall in line with fibromyalgia. I’ve been tested for things like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases but they were all negative. Things like exercise has been harder than ever before. I went from being active (even doing 5Ks) the last few years to unable to do much. Even walking a few miles seems like too much for me sometimes. But I’ve been trying to stay as active as I can. I had to take a less physical job at work because I was no longer capable of doing what I was doing. I’m always exhausted but my blood tests and vitamin levels have been fine the last several months. No amount of sleep refreshes me. This would also explain my worsening depression. I am trying to remain positive.

Anyway nothing is confirmed and I don’t know yet but just think of me during my afternoon appointment please. Thanks all!

  1. Best of luck for your appointment. I hope that you do not have fibro (wouldn’t wish it on anyone) and that it is something easily sorted. Drop me an email if you have any questions & I’ll try my best to help (I was diagnosed with fibro last year). Take care
