Saw new rheumatologist

Guess what, another full battery of tests, but said, surprise surprise, probably fibromyalgia!

The tests make sense. He wants to rule out other causes, perhaps psoriatic arthritis or other auto-immune conditions. Saw his recs pending tests, Cymbalta--any thoughts?

Hey Peter,
my rheumatologist didn't like the term fibromyalgia so you are winning on that front so far!

Cymbalta didn't help me in the 5 months I took it... mind you it's hard to say cause I don't know how bad it might have been in that time without it...

Good luck with the elimination game - I'm playing too with my immunologist!
