A Good Day So Far

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone. I am happy to say that for now, I am feeling pretty good so I hope it will last as I need to catch up on some things around the house. I went to the rheumatologist yesterday and didn't leave knowing anything more than when I arrived. She did set me up for referrals to other doctors. I have so many referrals now that I have to go to this month that I am going to have to call and reschedule some of them. There are about 8 of them which includes a couple of specialty doctors as well as labs and xrays. I am so tired of doctors right now. My rheumatologist did set me up to see a podiatrist for my feet. She examined my feet and noticed that my toes were cold. She asked if I had ever had any circulatory problems which I haven't. That could be what is causing my foot pain. I hope the podiatrist will be able to find out. I am hoping for a good day today. I need to move a little bit of furniture around in my bedroom. Nothing heavy, just a little rearranging. I hope everyone here has a wonderful Tuesday!

I went through a very trying time and was in a lot of pain when I wrote this post. Fortunately, now I am feeling better. I think with neuropathy, you have flares just like other diseases and I think that is what happened to me.

@simone10 Glad that you are feeling better ..I have fibromyalgia and when it flares up, my life turn upside down ... But this is just a part of the ageing process i guess ..

@epiffanie I'm sorry that you have fibromyalgia too. It's not a lot of fun but right now I am not having a lot of pain. Most of my pain has to do with neuropathy in my feet.

I hope they are able to find out what is wrong with your feet and anything else that is going on.

So do I. I have an appointment with pain management on 11/30 so maybe they can tell me something.

I hope they can find the reason why you have pain in your feet. My husband always has very cold toes, but they have not found a circulatory problem.

So far, I don't know a whole lot of what is going on. I have my suspicions that the problem with my feet is caused from a tiny herniated disk in my lower back.

@simone10 It is true that this could be the cause. I hope they can find a solution without surgery.

@LadyDuck I do too. I'm not sure if they could do surgery on something so small.

I hope they cure the cold toes bit, that just doesn't sound good to me.

So far, nobody seems worried about anything. I've been told that I have neuropathy, which I already knew and that there isn't a lot they can do but treat the symptoms.

I hope so too. So far the only thing I have had done is an injection in my hip which has helped a lot with my hip pain at night.

From my own experience only: to me it looks like you blood is not circulating properly, be very careful with that. I don't want to scare you but it is something to take seriously. Insist on getting an answer NOW, don't wait.

It sounds like you have a busy few weeks ahead of you, hopefully you continue to feel better. I'm getting ready to go into work in a little while.
