Gabapentin 900mg daily amitryptiline 35mg at night .codiene & antimflamotory.s daily.I am rather confused now are my symtoms ( muscle & joint pain .breathless fast heart rate. Swollen finger & toe joints ) .down to ME or lupus ? . Gp wanted to send me to rheumatoligist .but I refused .I've had bad experiances before with specialists. Feeling worried of where this diagnosis of lupus leaves me. As far as treatment is concerned.Dr has agreed to treat me himself.is anyone else in simalar stuation? .Thank you for excepting me to the site I'm very grateful .
