The Rheumatologist

So I met the rheumatologist today.  She is definitely a good doctor on first impressions, she's Latina, from Puerto Rico; and is pure spitfire!  I'm going for a round of X-Rays, Lab Work, and I need to have a Sleep Study done.  She agrees 100% that I do indeed have Fibro, though Dr. V. is not [...]
