Went back to the rheumatologist today, and he says I do NOT have rheumatoid arthritis. So yay for that!
It would be nice to know why my knee is doing it’s best imitation of a water balloon, however. He says his “best guess” is that it’s regular ol’ arthritis, but “we’ll have to see how it goes”. And then I got a cortisone injection in that knee. Which, damn, that felt WEIRD. It still hurts right now, but I’m hopeful that in a day or 2, it will be better.
He’s also putting me on Cymbalta to see if that helps the fibro symptoms. Which would be nice. Today was one of those days when I slept like shit, and everything just aches in a non-specific yet completely miserable way. I’ll pick that up tomorrow, and we’ll go from there! I know a couple people on here have taken it... what’s it like, as far as side effects and such? Has it helped you?
