Just received a call from the rheumatology nurse. They repeated my blood tests last week as I had really bad foot pain. To cut the story short, my ana has come back positive again (3rd time), but nothing else is showing up for any specific diseases. I know I should be happy but the fact is my joints and muscles still cause me so much pain, my back is always killing and I'm constantly tired. So the symptoms combined with the ana still apparently amount to 'post viral syndrome' apparently.
Does anyone know anyone who has had post viral syndrome? They've given me no advice apart from to take anti inflammatories! I'm trying so hard to manage but it's really hard. I've tried staying off work, going to work, exercising, not exercising... Aaaaaargh haha!!!!
