MRI Time

I'm having an MRI of my knee done tomorrow at 7:30 am.  I'll have my ankle and foot done on Friday morning.  Not sure what can be seen or determined by this, but hopefully something.

Not too much pain today, but my low-grade fever was back and I was extremely tired.

I'm feeling down....and alone.  I could use a friend or two right now.


  1. Hi Beth Ann,
    Just want you to know you have some friends out here! Boy, that new rheumy appt can't seem to come soon enough, eh? I really hope the new rheumy will be able to get some clues as to what is going on. I'm not positive, but I don't think weakness is a symptom of fibro, unless it's weakness secondary to pain. Have your regular blood tests been normal? No anemia or thyroid problems? Did current rheumy check for sjogren's or scleroderma? Did ortho guy say why he thought possibly scleroderma? Did he say what kind of arthritic changes he saw in the toe/foot? Any erosions? I really hope this new rheumy will be extremely thorough and get to the bottom of this.

  2. I hope the MRI offers some clues as to what's going on, Beth Ann. It's hard, but remember that you're not really alone in dealing with these symptoms, even though it feels like it. Here's wishing you the best for this appointment and with your upcoming appt. with the rheumatologist.
