So I’ve been really quite unwell for some time now and after being referred I finally saw a rheumatologist consultant last month.
He said I needed to be tested for Lupus which I’d never even heard of before but he said most of my symptoms pointed him towards this.
This week I have felt so unwell. After two weeks of fighting a chest and sinus infection I thought I deserved a break but no my body has given up on me.
I’ve exhaustion beyond believe, joint and body aches. Night sweats!!
I’m having to plan my day so that I get things done in the morning and then rest the rest of the day until school pick up and then hope my 6 year old doesn’t mind me collapsing on the sofa ☹️
So yesterday my bloods came back. It was worded.... Your autoimmune test has come back strongly positive with an ANA of 1:640 with a homogeneous pattern. Together with your symptoms and low lymphocyte count this is suggestive of autoimmune disease.
So I now have to wait till May 2nd to see anyone.
I’m confused by these results, do I have lupus or something else.
And with feeling so unwell this week I’m just so low and can’t stop crying 😢
Any help or advice really gratefully accepted x
