Hi, I have never been on this site before. I suppose I will start by giving some history. I have been seen by a rhumatologist for almost 2 years. After a slow recovery from a surgery my doc did some labs and found some funny stuff. Not sure what it meant he sent me to my pcp who did the same work and then he sent me to a rhumy. The rhumatologist said I had fibromyalgia and that is it. Then after blood work he added antiphosphilipid antibody syndrom. About a year later and more blood work, and more issues, he finally decided that something is going on and I needed to start methotrexate for my joint pain in my hands. The problem was, I was about to move and he did not want me to start it without monitering so he told me to see a rhumy here where I live now. I got in quickly and the doc saw me for 5 min, never looked at my previous chart, and said all I have is Fibro. I am very frusterated. I am very in tune with my body, and I know there is somthing not right. It took almost 2 years for my old dr to decide to treat me and now this one sees me 1x and says nothing is wrong. I am all about not being sick, but I do not believe that is the case and he did not even run lab work. I guess loosing 30 pounds in 2 years is unremarkable...even if I am clinically underweight now. I am seeing a new dr in November. One more. To see if they have something to say that is different. I just want someone to listen to me and believe me. Now that winter is coming, I am getting more tired and have a lot more pain. Especially in my hands. Cold weather is the most painful of anything. Well any way, that is me. Feel free to ask anything. I am an open book and want advice.
