Have you been screened for other conditions that can give you diffuse muscular pain. Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) or polymyositis? Do you have any skin lesions? A history or family history of other autoimmune diseases like lupus, sjogren's, sarcoid, rheumatoid arthritis? Have you seen a rheumatologist for some screening blood work: including ANA, RA, sed rate, CK, and others? Have you seen a neurologist to screen for polyneuropathy or small fiber neuropathy? Please get back to me to discuss this further and I will reply. I will put out the phone option if you want me to call you, JA charges extra for that service, but we can discuss your issues more intensely. Or just write back.
