Pressure points

Posts: 386

Question..Does your rheumy push on pressure points each time you visit? Mine does and it's really getting under my skin. I hate it. She knows I hurt and most of them will hurt worse after she does. I have Firbo so she's not diagnosing me. Why push??? Im letting her know she needs to quit it!

To see what tender points you have at each visit, you could have been dx'd with 13 out of 18 initially but it can change over time like it does for many. I have 18 of 18 now and they still check mine everytime. I agree it hurts like hell.
