Home from 1st rheumy appointment.. and lo and behold his professional opinion is I do not have PMR or GCA.. He was very adamant that I am to young and have been misdiagnosed. I will give him credit where due, he was very thorough.
He wants me off the steroids within 3 weeks as they are causing me other issues. He said he believes I have Fibromyalgia and wants it controlled with pain killers and sleep aids.
I spent the 1st 20mins just crying haha.. I think its all been building up over the months.. I am a single Mum with no living family.. My teenage Daughter is the only one at home and I try to hide it all from her.. So think I reached my breaking point today and just sobbed.. I guess all I can do is have faith in what he is telling me and follow his advice.. Whatever the outcome my fundraising for PMRGCAuk will not stop..
