Has Anyone Else Been Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia And RA?

Has Anyone Else Been Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia And RA?

I saw my rheumatologist for the first time at the end of August and was informed that I also have fibromyalgia. I do now understand why I am in so much pain, and would like to know if anyone else has it and what they are going through......

Gabapentin nauseated me so
I used epsom salt baths, stretching, massage and wear a portable TENS unit called Quell. It's worn just below the knee on my leg.
I take neurotin and diclofenac. I am on methotrexate for RD.

I need something to stop the burning in my thighs. I have Sarcoidosis and RA, OA, and fibromyalgia. And I suffer with depression. My faith keeps me going. I have pain all day. Until now it is a part of me. I can make jokes about it sometimes. I do what I can and all other stuff can wait until I'm feeling better. I just want to be free from this disease.

Symptoms familar and similar. Its Auto Immune Disease. Joints, bones, ligaments muscles. When inflammation is presence thete will be pain. Try to control that by diet, supplements, sleep, and exercise.

I have had Fibro for 3 years and just told I also have RA.
for the Fibro I take Lyrica . I find it really helps. I also have a bulging disc in my back so I get the nerves on each side chemically burned / cut. This really helps my legs, hips, thighs feel much better. Otherwise, life is miserable. I hope this helps.
