I went to the ER today because I was hurting so bad I could not even stand up straight. I waited in the waiting room for like two hours before they called me back. They took blood and checked me for a kidney infection. I don't have an infection but the doctor told me I have fibroidmyalgia on top of the RA. He said sometimes this happens when a person gets RA. I cant take much more. I don't know what to do do. I feel like I am just a big burden to my family because it seems like I am sick all the time. I am sick of being sick so I can just imagine what my family must be thinking. I know they keep assuring me that everything is ok but I know deep down they are getting frustrated like I am.  I just want some medicine that will make me feel better so I can get on with my life. I want to it to be like it was before..get up go to work and then after work be able to go for another couple hours like hubby does. I cant even keep up anymore. I guess the only thing I can do is try to stay positive and not let this get me down. Oh...wait it already has......

Hon, I have fibromyalgia.  It's not a fun disease.  I just hope that you are gettting a SECOND opinion before accepting what the doctor in the ER said....because, if not, you might have been diagnosed incorrectly as far as fibro goes.  PM me if you'd like some information on the illness itself.  I can certainly help you get through it.

 I'm sorry if it hurts all over...but, hugs to you for recovery.
