    Thank you SO much, everyone. I think I'm still in this first stage, where learning as much as I can is both helping me and scaring me at the same time. It's only been a few months for me now, so I'm...

    I guess I don't have my answers yet. That's probably the best way for me to look at it and you're right, I need to stay in close contact with my doctor and hopefully he can help to alleviate some of...

    That's exactly how it was with me. But on top of that, I worry about taking the ativan too often, because I know it's addictive and I don't want to have to go through withdrawal. So I worry myself...

    Anxiety

    Hi everyone,

    I guess I'm mostly here to vent this time around. It's only been three months since my diagnosis and, overall, I don't think a lot has changed except my mental state. I've been...

    Thank you! Hopefully they did this, as I have an appointment with my GP in two weeks. I've just been disappointed by the communication between my doctors before, but I'll hope for the best this time...

    I do have an appointment with my GP in two weeks. I'm only wondering if I should bring it up with my rheumatologist instead because he and my GP don't seem to communicate, which is a little...

    Hi everyone,

    So it's been about two months since I was diagnosed and started the plaquenil and while I've noticed improvement in some symptoms (my muscle pain is all but gone!), I've started...

    Yeah, I could definitely feel a change, too. It was so strange, I'd never felt anything like that before.

    Thanks for the answer! :D

    Hi all,

    First, thanks again for the welcome. I've been reading a lot of posts here, gathering information, getting used to the diagnosis. I can't lie, a little part of me keeps expecting the...
