I went to the doctors this morning to get the results of my ANA test, and they have come back negative. I know I should be pleased, but I just want some answers.
I have been having aches and pains, severe exhaustion, blood spots, rashes on my feet when I go in the sun, very painful feet and hands, extreme hair loss, heart palpertations, mouth ulcers and just generally feeling terrible and completely worn out :o(
My sister has lupus and has been diagnosed with it. I have all the same symptoms, but the result came back negative?
At least I have an appointment for a rhymatologist for 9th October.
My question is ... will he be likely to find out what is wrong with me?? are there other illnesses that carry the same symptoms I am experiencing? is there another lupus test that can be carried out?
I am at my wits end .... I just want to know what is wrong with me.
