I'm 39 and just had my first appointment with a rheumatologist yesterday. She did x rays and ultrasound on my joints and says she does not think it's RA and now doing more blood tests which may indicate lupus I have had a positive ANA along with pretty much every symptom of RA except swollen, red joints, and every symptom of lupus except rash. I was told 5hey expect my bloods to be negative as apparently it can be early on, so will be put on plaquenil if negative blood tests and if positive will add immunosuppressive drugs and who knows what else. I'm tired if being tired and in pain and waiting to find out what the heck is going on. Was told it's definitely auto immune but I don't fit symptoms of really anything else but RA or lupus. Being tested for 'sticky blood' too. Any afvuce/support/pearls of wisdom greatly appreciated.
