I thought I would update my good friends here on my last rheumy doctor visit. So if you remember, I am seronegative RA, but at my doctor visit in September, I was in the middle of a flare for various reasons and my doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. This, I knew was absurd as I don't fit most of the criteria for fibro. However, to my dismay, it was added to my health chart. Fast forward to February, and filled with much valuable advice from you folks, I saw my doctor again. I stated why I didn't think I had fibromyalgia. He looked at my recent MRI results (showing bone marrow edema and synovitis) and poked around at a few places on my person and simply said, "Ah, you don't have fibromyalgia." Simple as that. Sometimes I wonder if they practice 'Pick a diagnosis' for the day!
Feeling much more at ease now!
All the best to you all!
