Another doctor, another diagnosis

Saw a pain management specialist today, who doesn't think I have fibromyalgia. He thinks I have arthritis of the spine.

So in a couple of weeks they'll inject dye into my spine and see what happens.

So the official diagnosis is...

1) Upper Respiratory Infection
2) Fibromyalgia

I have horse pills for the first, and an increase in Cymbalta for the second with more to come if that doesn't make any difference.

In honor of being defective, here's my favorite song about it

Not a good 24 hour period so far

Woke up yesterday with headache

By 11am headache had morphed into migraine, complete with light sensitivity and prickly hot/cold flashes and nausea

Spent the next 15 hours wishing my head would just explode already and get it over with so I could die

Got a couple hours sleep about 4am, woke up a little bit ago with fever and all the joint pain that goes with an elevated body temperature

I see the doctor this afternoon

Cleaning up the Corner a bit

Taking a broom to the corners of my mind...

Changed up the theme to try to get away from mental darkness at the moment. Much thanks to [info]stellastars for offering this wonderful free layout.

Have any of y'all been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? If so, how did you and your doctor(s) come about that diagnosis? What do you do to treat it? The PT lady mentioned it as a strong possibility, considering my physical issues, but I don't want to jump into Internet-condria and proclaim that I definitely have it. I want to know the steps my doctor and I will have to take to either rule it out or confirm it.
