As you know from my previous post I had to visit the dreaded doctor today. I hate going to the doctor and only do so if I'm in a lot of pain as which I was on Tuesday. Although my pain had subsided today, I still went to my appointment because I want and need to know what is wrong with me.
Okay, so here's the prognosis. The doctor (I swear he was fresh out of med school) rushed me through the first initial meeting (I hate that) and then sent me to X-ray. Before he rushed me out of the room to X-ray across the hall, he poked and prodded at my shoulder bring more pain that I had went there with. I told him my symptoms and what I already knew about the symptoms adding into one diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. He said that was probably nothing to worry about, but maybe something to consider along with arthritis.
So, he sent me off to get and X-ray of my right shoulder and I had to ask them to X-ray my hand which also has extreme pain throughout a few times a week. So, they ordered another X-ray of my hand. My X-rays were good. No breaks or cracks or anything unusual. My bones had no holes and seemed to be pretty healthy. That's another check mark on the ruling out list.
