RA & Fibro Flares; update

I saw my rheumatologist today and brought up all the things that my neurologist last month told me were probably RA or fibromyalgia related. The doctor checked my fibro points and they were all super painful, so I’m getting a new med to add to what I’m already taking. My RA is also still flaring, so I get steroids, too. As for that pesky list from the neurologist, the doctor told me that those things usually only pop up in people with super uncontrolled disease states and mine has been good for the last couple years. So we did some “deep blood work” that we don’t usually do to see if something is wrong or if something else is at play. Being me is fun. But I have a new theme song this week. Listen and enjoy!

I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
