Feeling a little better. Scheduled a doctors appointment with a new doctor on the 23 the earliest they could get me in. We are going to do a complete work up all lab work ect. and see what is going on. Been taking naps in the afternoons the last couple of day's doesn't seem to help though makes me feel more tired.

What is happening with you feeling so tired and so much, sounds just like the chronic fatigue of Fibromyalgia. If your blood work doesn't show anemia (iron difficiency), you may want to talk to your Dr about Fibro. It is a difficult diagnosis, though, plus so many of the Fibro and DM symptoms are similar. Its just a thought. Good luck with the new Dr. Btw, I agree with James (Jayabee52) about getting labs done ahead of time. Although the Dr may not go along with that, because he doesn't know anything about you yet. ;-) Mara

I will remember that I have seen these commercials on TV lately for HRC which is a hormone replacement therapy that is all natural and it is a shot that is done specifically to your lab results for what you are missing and low on the problem is insurance does not cover it. I hate taking pills so that would have been an alternative if it was covered.

Might you call your new Dr's office and get a lab slip ahead of your appointment so you'll ALREADY have some lab tests for the 2 of you to look at? That way you can hit the ground running and not have to wait the time between your 1st and 2nd appointments to see what's going on with you. Just a thought.

I am hoping so to. I am hoping that doing the complete physical and blood work up will show something and make since of how I have been feeling for the past 5 weeks.
