Hey guys... I've been to my rheumatologist at the hospital and guess what? After a thorough assessment and appraisal on my blood test, he's came to the following conclusions:
-> I have seronegative lupus (my doctor asked for some other weird tests) that shall be confirmed by this tests, even though given my symptoms, the chance of in fact having lupus is huge
- they have found a swelling in my thyroid and also a node on the left. I'm doing an ultrasound this Saturday to make sure whether or not i should have a biopsy... I am quite tense with this possibility.
The doctor has said that this dx could explain the tiredness, gain of weight, joint pain, insomnia and so on..
in the end he suggested that i might be proned to autoimmune diseases... No kidding. With all the things that i have and he says i might... Humpf...Do doctors in Uk and around the world act like this? I was rather disappointed with his approach.
In the end ,i went home with a prescription of plaquenil to improve the symptoms. Only i am feeling sicker with this drug. It is making me nauseous and it is giving me a boring headache. Not migrane, but it is like a hangover pain. Do you feel that to?
