to realise that there are people out there that have similar if not exactly the same health issues and that I am not a hypochondriac as suggested by a lady consultant years ago. I was wondering if anyone can as i am now very confused. Years ago I was diagnosed with RA then about 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus positive ANA and Ro positive ??? But now I have been told by a nurse.... Who has nothing to do with my condition that my diagnosis is connective tissue disease. This was stated on a letter she read on my hospital records, written by my lupus consultant. I am on plaquinel and have had my pain killer changed to Naproxen just recently by who i dont know. My consultant and GP haven't said a word to me about this ..... I am very confused as to what's happening now. Any ideas why the diagnosis would have been changed.
