I had my second visit with Dr. V on Wednesday. She went over my blood work and it was all good. The lab did rule out Lupus so that is one less diagnosis on my chart! But we traded it for another that goes hand-in-hand with fibromyalgia, Allodynia (pain from touch).
We went over my medication and she increased the gabapentin to 1600mg a day. She also added something for breakthrough pain, Soma. I’ve had a few doses now and I can say it takes the big edge off the pain but if I take it I’m not going anywhere that’s for sure!
I see her again in January!
