I have an appointment coming up after christmas as The Lupus Unit at Guy's hosptial and am getting stressed about it. I know it will help seeing someone who speclises in the field, but am doubting that i have it and that i could be wasting there time, I have been diagnosed with lupus and sneddon's syndrome by my local neurologist who i have been under for a number of years. who i have faith in and my own doctor (GP) has been good and he was the one who sent the referral am on warfarin, plus other medication i have a lot of the symptons and deep down i know that i have it. I think it because of telling them all the different symptons and flares, and how hard i find it at times, trying to work and cope with it all, if its not one thing its another, i am at the moment dealing with a fracture metatasar which i did in september and taking a long while to heal, waiting now for a mri scan on the foot. This year has been a bad year and just bit sorry for myself. I dont wan the doctors guys to think i am losing the plot or a fruit cake, as once i start telling them different things that have happened and how i am feeling etc.
I know the doctors will probably be fine, i read a lot of good thing regardng the consultant at the lupus centre, probably just me have a turn and getting out of my system. i will let you know after christmas how it goes.
Thanks for letting me ramble.
Best wishes to all.
