Hello everyone Thankyou all for your support and guidance!
I’d just like to update everybody, I managed to get an appointment with my GP today, I was sent to the hospital to rule out a blood clot on the lung I had a blood test (Ddimer) which thankfully came back negative.
While I was in the doctors with my GP I showed her all the pictures of my face rash and the Raynaud attacks, she said I’d like to test you for something called “Lupus” especially because of the butterfly rash and the symptoms you are presenting with, in the back of my mind I was doing star jumps because finally the doctor was listening to me and not fobbing me off! I had 7 bottles of blood taken and I get the results in 3weeks time.
These are the tests Ive had done today -
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
Full blood count
Lupus anticoagulant screen
Finally one step closer to figuring out what’s going on! These next few weeks are going to be long waiting atleast I have my kids and Xmas to keep me busy!
Thankyou for the support xx
