Went to Drs. today
sometimes I get an "egg" on the side of my ankle , but have never managed to co-ordinate an appt to when it is there
Is that inflammation? I asked
I should say so! was her reply.
So I said ,here,s the thing,, you say that is inflammation on my ankle, another Dr and an OT have said I have inflammation in the other ankle,
another Dr says my lungs are frequently inflamed
The local hospital found inflammation recently
My eyelids and left cheek often become visibly swollen, and I have often felt the inflammation myself on my elbows.
How comes then, my inflammatory markers are always negative (this is what I was told at the lupus unit)
Are they ,she said in a tone that suggested otherwise (she was reading the notes on the screen in front of her)
Turns out there were a few positives
She was going to refer me back to the lupus unit but noticed it is not that long since they discharged me (again)
She is going to write and ask if I can be seen again or at least have a phonecall
She is also going to ask if I can have an annual check up, just to keep an eye on things
Going round in circles or what?!
