Oct 27, 2014 · Mystery Solved – Diagnosis Moves Patient from Frustration to Peace of Mind and a Plan

Karen,
Thank you for writing your story. I have had lupus for many years, however 6 weeks ago I started have many of the same muscle problems you did.

I’ve literally gone from a sick person who’d learned how to live a semi normal life to a disabled person who can’t walk, talk correctly, work my normal job, driving is difficult and shopping… well let’s just say that doesn’t happen anymore.

Someone saw this article and showed it to me. We immediately took it to my doctor at Mayo and she thought it just might be a possibility.

I’ve had lots of testing and on Friday I was told that it’s my fibromyalgia and I need physical an cognitive therapy. It’s in my head! If anyone can understand my level of frustration and insult, its you.

Thank you again for sharing your story.
