    Nichole went to see the rhuematologist this morning.

    He gave her a thourough physical exam, very carefully listened to all her symptoms, did blood tests, xrays, and even a urine test.

    Xrays showed no degeneration of any of her problem joints. So ruled out Lupus and rhuematoid arthritis. He did diagnosis her with fibromyalgia. But explained there isn't really much he can do at this point. He did give her a script for ibuprofen to help with the pain. And she is to do stretching exercises.

    And he said if he finds anything else with the other tests he'll let us know right away.

    So, I'm taking this as good news. :smile: Especially since the other possiblities were not good at all.

    Glad that's settled.

    I'm glad he was very thorough. Sounds like the outcome is better than the other possibilities (not that Fibro is a good thing but better than what it might have been).

    Also glad that you have answers, and it is not as bad as the alternatives. How sad for her to have that so young.
