Hi All - Short post today. I debated with myself on posting this here, because I don't want anyone to think I am bragging. I am just excited. So if you don't want to read this, I understand, and welcome you to move on.
I got my lab work back last week and saw my Doc yesterday. Every one of my tests except the CR-P are now in range where they belong, and even things like liver and cholesterol, etc. are further down in the range than they were, and there was nothing wrong with them before, but now they are great. The CR-P was just .3 over range and has dropped 3.2 points since October.
My doc agreed yesterday that I am in remission and said that she thought I had been for six months, but the lab work was just not quite there. She said that I am in remission for both RA and Sjogrens (so that answers Simba's question from before of how I was separating them out). I guess I'm not. ha ha =)
But, the fatigue and widespread pain are still with me. Her diagnosis is Fibromyalgia. Geeeeze!!! I know nothing about that condition except that it mean muscle pain... Sheesh. At least the treatment for that I am already using... Pain control as needed and Flexeril during the night. We are also going to switch to the Doxycycline to see if it makes any difference to the pain or fatigue.
So the score is: Allergies, Asthma, Hypothyroidism, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogrens - 5 under control, and Fibromyalgia - New and not under control.
Blessings on all of us as we each follow our own paths to wellness...
