I saw my general practitioner last week as I posted in a earlier post and he gave me a rx for pain meds. When I was with him he said that he was goping to call my Rhummy and tell her how much pain I am in. He called me and said that she wants to see me tomorrow at 10:30. I can't go then so I am going Tnursday at 2:30. She told my general practitioner she needs to check me to see if this is neuro or what. All my labs are normal so shes not sure what is causing my pain. I am so happy that my general practitioner really did understand my pain and went so far as to call my Rhummy. Its a good feeling that when you say you are ill, doctors believe you. It really goes a long way!

I wiLl keEp you all posted as to what comews of this next visit.

Hugs,
Patty

Hey Patty,

That is great news! What an awesome general practitioner...that she would actually call the rheumatologist for you! I do hope your rheumatologist can find some answers for you. Please keep us posted.

Warm wishes,
