I have been going in and out of Dr's offices off and on for 6 years. I have my whole lower back is blown, spondylothesis, ddd and most recently have been diagnosed with Lupus. I get bad rashes when I get in the sun then I get sick. My joints ache all the time and insomnia is really bad. They wanted to do surgery on my back but I said no b/c I have seen too many people worse off after surgery. I got a compression fracture on my T8 last April, I run a low grade fever all the time and last year I was told I had a partial tear in my rotator cuff and went to physical therapy. It has not bothered me to bad until last Sat morning when I woke in so much pain is all I could do was cry, I could and can still not lift my left arm, have very little strength in it and it feels like a stabbing, burning feeling on the side, top and a little behind my shoulder. As far as my Lupus my tests all came back negative but b/c of the symptoms my PCP said I had Lupus and Fibro. I had a bone density test and have osteopenia. Now this same Dr sent me for MRI's on my left shoulder and it came back negative so he has not only told me I need a shrink, he now has taken my Lupus and Fibro diagnosis away. I need help please, am I crazy? How can my shoulder be in so much pain and I cannot even lift my arm but yet nothing is wrong? Are MRI's 100%? I have been sick for 6 years now and in Aug I had my uterus and cervix removed b/c of fibroids and a cyst. I feel so alone in all of this and lost, I think even my hubby looks at me like yeah right now when I say I am sick. I cannot function b/c my memory is so bad and I hurt all over, sores in my mouth, rash from the sun or tanning bed, painful swollen joints, muscle's ache and I still try to remain active. I am only 36 could this all be in my head? How could a Dr be so cruel to be treating me for diseases and giving me meds and since my shoulder MRI came back negative he says I need a shrink????? Please help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
