I went to st thomas today and saw dr Senna.
I have Fibromyalgia and UCTD and some of you may remember, that i have always searched for as much info/answers as possible .
After questions and examination ,i have also been diagnosed with Sjogrens.
For me , i feel better informed and going to st thomas' gave me the best chance of finding out more ........... for instance Low vit D and the shwimmer ????? ( spelt wrong ) eye test which had previously not been checked with my local rhuemy.
Dr Sanna was nice but he told me on two occassions !!!! that he needs to consentrate on his patients with more severe disease ! Ofcourse i understand and will be seeing my local rheumy in future , but i must admit , it did make me feel a bit like , i shouldn't be there or am undeserving of their care. But , i didnt know if i had Lupus or not so was worried , after all it is a serious disease .
Also , i have a question .........Am i right in thinking the UCTD means a separate disease than Sjogrens ? Does undiferrented mean unknown ? he did say that i dont have enough symptoms in one area to say : thats the one you have? sorry probably a silly question!
So thats it for now ! I am very pleased he didnt diagnose Lupus and hopefully never will !
