Hi there. I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me a bit.
I'm currently diagnosed with 2 AI conditions (thyroid and Palindromic Rheumatism), but I'm starting to worry that either my most recent diagnosis (PR) is wrong or that there's something more going on as well. I'm getting symptoms which don't seem to fit with either or that have come on at the wrong time (some of the thing could be thyroid related, but have come on after a long time of stable levels so it seems unlikely).
None of it is terribly concerning and if it were just one thing I'd probably just leave it to bad luck or some odd little thing, but where it's multiple things and it seems to be building I'm concerned there may be another AI condition hiding in the shadows. It's the sort of thing I would really like to know about asap cos then I have better chances of avoiding more urgent issues and generally preparing myself.
Despite going through it twice now I'm still not terribly confident with the whole suggesting things to doctors so I'm kinda hoping to get a bit of motivation and maybe some advice.
I was wondering how it was you knew something was up and how your diagnosis came about?
I'm asking here cos Lupus is what keeps appearing when I look into things and it's one of the better "advertised" AI conditions so of all the many AI conditions it seems to be a good one to use as a base.
Thanks a lot for any responses
