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!
