New Diagnosis

I saw my rheuma­tol­o­gist on May 29. She said she could­n’t pre­scribe any meds with­out a bunch of lab work. Her office has had the lab results since June 6. Today is June 13. That’s a full week.

After try­ing and try­ing and try­ing to get any use­ful infor­ma­tion at all from the office over the phone, today I went and just sat in her office until I got help. That took about five hours. I have orders for more lab work, pre­scrip­tions, and a shiny new diagnosis:
Spondy­loarthropa­thy

I’m still learn­ing about it. It would explain the back pain. It isn’t instead of fibromyal­gia, it’s in addi­tion to FMS. It would explain the back pain and abnor­mal lab results bet­ter than just FMS and osteoarthritis.

Edit: She also men­tioned “seroneg­a­tive rheuma­toid arthri­tis.” I’ve had a fever every time I’ve seen her, which has been pret­ty nor­mal for me late­ly. I get tired, I have a fever. Despite the fact that my nor­mal body temp has always been low.
