I don't know what I have.
I now have a daughter with a job.
I have a gastroenterologist that told me one thing and wrote something entirely different to my primary doctor.
No mention of considering me celiac, nothing about seeing a rheumatologist, not even gluten intolerance was noted. Even though that was the purpose of my visit and what my primary diagnosed me with.
So, I guess I have an ex-gastroenterologist.
All I do know is that my doctor is glad I didn't eat gluten for the sake of a test that would not change the treatment.
I have back pain, neck pain, pain in hands and feet.
I had blood taken and it's not RA.
Waiting for X-ray results to tell me if it is arthritis at all.
Since it is in several parts of my body, the doctor mentioned fibromayalgia.
I don't know.
It might be something.
But maybe it is something else.
All I know is the pain started in my lower back eons ago and this is the third doctor I have seen about it and of course now the pain is migrating elsewhere.
There is a link between low back pain and irritable bowel disease/syndrome or whatever that doctor wants to call it.
Also to celiac and all that good stuff.
I should be glad nothing is found wrong.
Except now, I just am more confused.
I do know that my body is all kinds of fucked up and that there is NOTHING I can do about it.
I am still thinking on the A-Z challenge this year.
Sometimes I really feel as if I have nothing to say.
I mean I do have SOMETHING to say about a lot of things.
But. I just don't know.
I did look at the list and I still have 29 days to figure it out.
