Yesterday I didn’t take the Naproxen because I was seeing the Rheumatologist today and I wanted the doctor to see me at my worst.  It was a horrible night of tossing, turning, and pain.  The Rheumatologist did a fairly quick examination, said she didn’t see swelling and that It didn’t look like RA.   She ruled our Lupus and Fibromyalgia.  I got the feeling she didn’t believe me and my pain.  Even though I told her I hadn't been sick for months she insisted it was a virus that would go away eventually.  She changed my anti-inflammatory medicine to Meloxicam and told me to return in 3 months.
