Hi guys, I haven't been on the forum for a while. I suppose I was feeling a bit fed up.
I was diagnosed with with Lupus in February I think after blood tests showed showed inflammation and a physical exam by a physician.
Two months later, due to still having pain despite being on meds, I was still in pain. I must add that my job is highly stressful.
Went to see a rheumatologist and he said fibromyalgia. It was only when I saw a psychologist last Friday that I realized just how resentful I was towards that rheumatologist. He told my husband that there's nothing wrong with me. This while I'm sitting in a world of pain.
The psychologist suggested that I get a second opinion, which I am going to, as my chest pains, heart palpitations, rashes etc does not fall under fibromyalgia. Also in January it was discovered that I had a thrush infection in my oesophogis (something that only happens when one has a compromised immune system). I was tested for HIV and diabetes (because of thrush infection) and it came back negative.
I also have a hatius hernia and had some bleeding in my intestines. Mid year they removed polyps from my stomach. Also have gastritis and IBS.
I'd appreciate any thoughts, as I am so fed up of being made out to be "putting on"
Thanks in advance 🌻
