On my way to my 1st Rheumy appt

And somehow I knew this would happen. For 3 weeks no I had rashes all over, my face was fire engine red, ankles were swollen, hands and feet hurting. And today of all days...I'm going to see my rheumy for the first time and I look and FEEL fine. Ughhhh I just knew it lol. Oh well hoping this goes well and maybe I'll get an official diagnosis or she can at least rule this out and work on getting better. Wish me luck! Darn it - even my face looks so clear. Bitter sweet moment lol.

How'd it go Ratana? Hope you're ok...🍀🍀🍀🍀 coco


It went better than expected. I woke up feeling ok and no rash at all. But the funny part is as I sat there rash on my face and hands started to show. It was the first time I was *happy* to see a rash. She ordered a very extensive bloodwork and I am due back to see her in a month. I think it went well. Thank you so much for asking and I'll definitely keep you guys updated.


😂😂😂😂and I'm happy your rash made a personal appearence too! Well done...a good step in the right direction...keep that chin up 👍👍👍👍🍀🍀🍀🍀
