Well, I finally got diagnosis after going back and forth from doctors. I was in hospital for a week in January and they said my synthroid dosage for my thyroid was too low. Doctor increased it and I started feeling better overall but still achy and tired and not quiet feeling good. I saw a rheumatologist in March that basically said I was old, fat, and lazy and the numbers were not high enough so it wasn't lupus. I went to see another rheumatologist about two months ago and been having tons of lab work tests, ultra sounds, and xrays. I went for follow up last Wednesday and she told me I have lupus, sjogrens, ra, uveitis(I have been having for a year and seeing eye specialist for), and that I tested positive for hepatitis so I need to see liver specialist. Wow!, I am freaking out and trying to absorb it all in. My husband said at least I finally know what it is and can start getting treated for it but now I have all these pills and eye drops to take and I feel like a ticking time bomb that is falling apart! I don't want to let it get me down because I have to avoid stress but having a hard time dealing with this. My face and left arm are numb so may have to go see a neurologist. I always feel better with ya'll to help but I am having a hard time with this right now so why it has taken me a week to post this. Feeling very low...
