I have some questions/ and yes I know I need to find a new primary Doctor. This is not as easy as it seems finding a new Doctor. Most won't take on a patient with autoimmune. Something to do with pain management. I do not take any pain medications except Tylenol. I am on high blood pressure medications. I take Lyrica. nexium for reflux, and warfarin for blood thining.
I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Fibromyalgia, Vascuelitus, Renods, Lupus inhibitor. Migraines. Continues sinus infections and swelling. Along with cluster headaches and tension headaches.
So as you can see I am on only one medication to help my multiple diagnoses except ONE Lyrcia Tha is it.
I know very little about MCTD, Fibromyalgia, Lupus inhibitor, Vascuelitus, Renods.
My primary Doctor diagnosed me with Renods about 3 years ago. But with the quick appointment yesterday took him 20 minutes to up date my medication chart and renew prescriptions. I started to tell him about the pain in my feet and hands mostly my feet. He said wish I had the time but I don't I am already 2 patients behind now. But what you have described is not renods. I don't know what it is............................. I was left with a blood test for vitamin D and B12 test that was it......................... So I guess I should find out more about the illnesses I have only one this primary Doctor diagnosed. Thank God!
So I guess what I want to know is where can I find out about these conditions?
I don't even know what firomyalgia dose or is caused from. I have no idea what the long term effects are to any of these.
My symptoms are joint pain in my hips neck shoulders, knees, ankles, of course headaches daily and sinus pain then my feet burn sharp pains in my toes, and feet, Then the fatigue it is out standing. I can think Oh I am going to clean out a closet and just walking across the living room I am beat like there is no tomorrow. Then I have shortness of breath.Sometimes it is ok and then others I can not hardly make it up the stairs. I was started on the Lyrcia by another Doctor Spine and sports guy. After the first week my feet stopped burning and most of the pain in my feet was gone. Then after about 3 weeks it all came back, My hips feelt better and my neck and schouldres were doing so much better and now it has too all returned the same.
