The issues I have are as follows fatigue, joint and muscle pain, dry eyes, migraines, plus sensitivity to sunlight, swollen joints ( especially feet, knees, and fingers and hands), plus several compression fractures in my back from T10 to L5, I also have numbness and tingling in my hands and feet plus my feet like they are on fire sometimes. I had 2 positive ANA tests in 2014 and was diagnosed with SLE, but since then have moved to another state (FYI im in the US),so they redid all blood tests and have had 4 negative ANA tests. My primary basically does nothing and my rheumatology doctor says it's Fibromyalgia and early onset degenerative joint disease which is something you usually get as an elderly person, I am 38 and have been dealing with these issues since about age 23 or 24. I'm on percocet 7.5mg 3 times a day for pain, diclofenec sodium 50mg for inflammation 3 times a day and 600mg of gabapentin 3 times a day for the tingling numbness and burning (max dose of this and it doesn't help). I'm thinking of getting another doctor to evaluate me that doesn't have any past records and just start from scratch and see what they say. I'm miserable and don't know what else to do. I basically am stuck in my house with nothing to do but watch TV because of the pain, like right now for the past week my hands have both been swollen at least twice their normal size which makes it hard to do things. I drop stuff all the time because of losing my grip or muscle control. It's hard to sleep and when I do finally sleep I'm uncomfortable and don't actually have a good night's sleep. Any helpful tips or advice on what to do or say is greatly appreciated. I see my rheumatology doctor next week on the 21st. Thanks in advance!!!!!
