Well, not much of an update. ANA tests came back - all negative. Not really sure how I’m feeling about that to be honest.
Been referred to Rheumy anyway - only test which hasn’t returned as yet is my RA Factor - GP thinks this is abit strange, as should have returned with ANA results. It’s being chased.
Anyway, few recent things have changed. Naproxen which I was taking for my joint pain - well, I suddenly had a ridiculous reaction to it. Blood blister type spots all over. Never had a reaction to an NSAID before, but in fairness I never had a reaction to Penicillin before, until last year. So make of that what you will...... happy coincidence? Who knows!
I’m obviously now off the Naproxen and although it didn’t get rid of the pain whilst taking it, I do feel it slightly took an edge off. So abit gutted!
Also 2 weeks into taking Iron and Folic for the anaemia. Can’t say I’m feeling a difference just yet, but I’m sure it will happen.
Back at immunology next week, and the plan was to move onto immunosuppressants to try and get a grip of the cold urticaria, which is currently out of control. I don’t really leave the house unless I absolutely have to. Doc has stuck me on sick for 2 weeks to give the iron time to kick in abit.
So far Lupus, RA, Fibro and Mastocytosis has been thrown into the possible diagnosis box. But I’m very confused with the negative ANA.
Are any of those even possible?
