I'm 20 years old and got diagnosed with this disease two days ago, for the past five years I have had appointment after appointment tor try to work out what was wrong with me and was even called 'a medical mystery' at one point.
MY first diagnosis was rheumatoid arthritis and then lupus and then fibromyalgia along side lupus. I am really confused by what the disease is, I've read loads online but none of it seems to suggests what causes the symptoms of the disease, why am I in pain all the time?
The diagnosis has really got me down, everyone keeps saying it's a good thing that I know whats wrong but it just does not feel like a positive.
Can anyone help and give me some more insight into it all?
