I am new here after finally getting a diagnosis yesterday. Fourteen years of getting ignored / dismissed by doctors and a few misdiagnoses later, and yesterday was finally told that I am "a bit loopy" - I have individual, verifiable symptoms yet it doesn't show in my blood. I am now on hydroxycholoquine, meloxicam, cimetidine, amitriptyline, dapsone and propranalol as well as iron supplements. I truly rattle.
Today, I feel so relieved. I have a weight lifted off of my shoulders because someone has finally said that what I am feeling is not in my head and was able to put all the symptoms together to draw a conclusion. Finally.
I now off to trawl the site, looking for some answers!
