Just had a telephone appointment with one of the GP's to talk over my bloods requested by the dermatologist. Everything negative apart from antiphospholipid Antibodies which is positive. She did try to explain what these markers are and mentioned lupus but I didn't really take it all in - I'm not great at taking on board any kind of info at the minute. I did say that I was very disappointed with the service I'd been having and she then suggested that i go and see her at the surgery. At least I can have my partner with me when I go.
I think I might have hypermobility as reading through an old post, I did a bit of research and I have backwards elbows, can flex my little fingers further than 90°, put my palms flat on the floor with straight legs, I could (too painful at minute) bend my thumbs to touch arm. I have always thought I was just bendy - even had trouble at chiropractors as he couldn't get me to crack as I was 'too bendy' we just laughed. I'm really not laughing now. Would this be a secondary/overlap or am I running before I can walk?
I would be so grateful from you all if you could give me some advice. Should I mention my bendyness? What should I ask GP with regard to next step? Is it wise to change surgeries now or should i wait a bit?
Thanking you all in advance - your support means the world to me.
