Has any one of my good friends here been tested/diagnosed with dermatomyositis? I have always wondered if my RD diagnosis was off target, especially being sero-negative. I am on Enbrel and very much under good pain control, but my new Rheumatologist did a thorough exam and noticed that my hands were rough and the nail beds red with jagged cuticles. She ordered blood tests for dermatomyositis and anti-synthetase syndrome. Any comments or personal experiences are much appreciated.
Thank you all so much!
