I am a mother of three great kids! One is home from college right now but the other 2 are in their 30's & have families & live here & overseas!
Happily married & was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia & PKD/PLD in 2007. Was told by my doctor that there was no treatment for it & if eat clean & exercise- I would be fine! I pulled & pushed for the next 9 years & finally was diagnosed with RA in late 2015!
My hands & wrists are always so painful. My doctor says my ulnar nerves are shot. But I have been on temporary disability for quite some time now due to emotional problems, depression & relentless fatigue.
I have started paperwork for permanent disability because I don't think I can type any longer. And my hips, knees & feet are also very painful. I feel bloated & feel pressure constantly under my entire rib cage. My GP says it's Fibromyalgia but I haven't had X-rays or any MRIs since 2007 & we know our bodies best.
I feel there is more going on inside me than just phantom nerves being triggered. But we will see, huh? I don't trust many doctors any longer. But I will fight every step of the way when a doctor tells me "it's all in my head!
