So I'm reading The Lupus Book, my goodness it's all making sense now!!
Had my appt. with my primary dr. yesterday, it went really good, she actually listens, unlike my rheumy.I mentioned getting a referral for another, but she said since I'm reading this book and know what to ask, give another chance, if it doesn't work for me then she'll give me the referral.
She upped me on cymbalta from 30 to 60mg, I am waking up 2-3 times at night and all my joints, back and right hip are hurting really bad, my knees are the ones that get me the most. Lately mt feet have been hurting to the point I can't walk, it's so painful.
All in all going to make it a good weekend
Ya'll have a great and blessed 4th.
