I saw a Rhemotoligist last week after many trips to the GP, he diagnosed me with Osteoarthritus and Rhemotoid Arthritus, when I mentioned I thought I had Fibro he said we diagnose Fibromyalgia when the diagnosis does not fit in to a box ie OTor RA . So basically saying if we diagnose fibro it means there is not a box to put you in. Is this correct? as reading on here some of you seem to have it all, i'm so confused :/
I'm only 49 and evidently for me the menopause caused my OA with vengance, I evidently have it in my knees, feet, hands and neck. Not sure what the next step is as have no follow up appointments booked but did have bloods and xrays after appointment. I'm also wondering if it came on so quicky how much worse will i get.
Any advice would be greatly appreciatted,
