Newly diagnosed with rheumatoid Arthritis & Lupus
I was diagnosed with both RA & Lupus on oct of 2012 and since my Dx I've been having severe burning in my ankles more in my right ankle,tingling in my hands an feet,Rash on my chest neck area..night sweats,fatigue out of this world!! Wrist pain rib pain kinda like I'm being hugged very tightly..Neck pain left shoulder has a kink in it the list could go on forever!!
Ok skipping to the meds my GP has me on
Calcium carb 1250MG=1 a day for bones
Gabapentin 100MG= 3x a day for nerve pain
Naproxen 500MG=2x a day for pain
Hydrocodone/APAP 5-500MG=2x a day for pain
Ondansetron 4mg=only 1 every 4 hrs as needed for vomiting
Diphenhydramine 25Mg=2x a day for itching
Ok so those are the meds I'm on for now
I'm waiting to be seen by my Rheumatologist since I've been Dx in oct it's now Dec I've been to the Er for Kidney infection they put me on cipro finished it all symptoms went away an came right back!! At this point all I can do is be patient an wait for my rheumy to call..IM getting the run around my GP tells me she faxed over my medical history to the Rheumy when I call to see if I can make an appointment with the Rheumy I get "We haven't received your medical reports yet" I'm so frustrated an confused..
