I deleted my last post about my 2nd Rheumy appt.. I was being a little whiny and realized it after a few hrs of thinking it through. I must admit I was upset and quite frustrated that my second ana test came back negative- even though the first one was positive. My Rheumy went with the second test and said she'll still retest me in a year maybe less. She still thinks it's lupus but wants to take time diagnosing me. She did diagnose me with sjogren's and raynauds. I am now taking plaquenil. Anyone on this and how well does it work? I still didn't get answers on my rash especially my butterfly rash, my ankles swelling, itchiness, light sensitivity, and the fatigue. But after my self deleted rant i am grateful that I'm one step closer. Plus my primary dr is sending me to get ultrasounds for my kidneys and liver just to make sure.
Frustrated but still grateful.
