Name: Kay Myers
Chatroom Nickname: oleladee
Age: 39
Gender: Female
Location: Kansas
Type of Arthritis: inflammatory arthritis, Sjogrens, "probable Lupus but not tested positive yet, Raynauds,Small Fiber Progressive Neuropathy caused by the swelling in feet and in my hands
Medications: Plaquenil, azulfidine, neurontin, dilantin, Celebrex, Folic Acid, B12, Elavil and others I cannot remember.
Surgeries: carpal tunnel both hands, cubital tunnel (elbow)right arm, total hysterectomy, gall bladder removal, left knee 3 times, sural nerve biopsy right ankle (worst decision I ever made.... has not healed after 7 months...)
Hobbies: writing short stories and poems, working on my murder mystery novel when my short term memory does not hurt me, reading, watching good movies, crocheting, surfin the net when my hands allow
Other Stuff: Over the last 2 years I have seen doctors who have told me I was crazy or that I should see a shrink. The hardest thing I have ever faced in my life has been the diagnosis process. I do not fit perfectly into one category and therefore since the "almighty perfect God-Doctors" could not diagnose me or fix me they have passed me off to other doctors or ignored my pleas about fatigue, pain and frustration. I am glad I found this site.
