Short and Sweet

I weighed in last week and gained 1.4. Today I lost 2.8 ww total 41.2 my total 55.4 I am so happy and I finally think I got it. I know I am still going to have slip ups but I don't let it devastate me anymore.
I went to the
rheumatologist and she was upset that my general doctor diagnosed me without doing more tests so I had 28 xrays done, 6 vials of blood drawn and peed in a cup. I am upset that I read 2 books regarding rheumatoid arthritis and get upset and starting crying a little in the doctors office. I guess it is a good thing that she is so good at what she does that she wanted all these tests done. I don't go back to see her until August 11th but she told me if there is anything to be concerned about she will call. I think I will call next week anyway to see what the results are. I think having to wait another 24 days is a little unreasonable.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hi, I'm just getting caught up on blogs, and am sorry to read about your problems with pain and RA.

I don't know if this will help or not, but I was diagnosed with Lupus, RA, and Osteoarthritis in both knees... amongst other things. Not fun stuff, so I can sympathize with what you are going through.

One thing that made a dramatic difference for me, painwise, was when I stopped eating sugar. If you do a search on the internet on the connection between sugar and pain, you'll find that sugar INCREASES our sensitivity to pain.

Anyway, I just know that now I have cut way way back on the pain meds. Regardless as to what is causing the pain, RA or something else, it helps to cut out the sugar. Well, I should say it helped ME, since we are all different. :-)

Hope you get good news from the Dr.

I was lucky to be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as quickly as I did. Most people with FM and RA go years in pain before they get the right kind of help. Have a good week.

its been a while since I have checked with you (you used to read my old blog Journey To The Healthier Side of Life - I also started a new one, like you did). I am sorry that you are going through pain, but it sounds like you have a good doctor who is taking every precaution, and that is a good thing! Wishing you well!
