Thanks for answering my question. It is so difficult waiting for a diagnosis, there are days that I actually wonder if there is really anything wrong with me at all. I know the pain is there, and it radiates right through me. I know I have to be patient and wait, but it is sooooo hard. Do you have pain all the time or just sometimes? I have pain almost daily since December 4th, 09. I just started taking Meloxicam and Plaqunil about a month ago. I guess the meds will take a while to take effect. My family doctor is very supportive of me and is willing to meet with me when the pain too bad. My Rheumy is 8 hours away and he wants to see me again in 11 months. I guess I am blessed to have a Rhuemy after all. Ok well thanks again Mountaindreamer, I really appreciate your support.
