I'm new to all this confusion Ijust don't get it.I don't even know what it is I don't get!
For years I have had so much pain here ther my poor feet have been swollen and painful for ever.Then about two years ago I started to get funny itchy lumps under my skin on my calves.Some days they pain of them was very very bad other days just itchy.Erythema nodosum I was told.Still have them as to this day.
Back and forward to Dr's labelled a moaner.Then a few months ago the pain in my wrists,thumbs and excruciating pain in my feet.Off I eventually went to the Rhemi tests Its a ',connective tissue disease ' SO is is Ra ? I ask er not sure at the mo were calling it a connective tissue disease ! We will give the same trearment and see how it goes.
I just can't get to grips with this I want my life back.Single mum, working 50 hours a week 3 dogs to walk.A house to run and bills to pay.Worked my botty off for 35 years ,don't do sick days etc.All these strange things happening to my body,dry dry drier than that mouth , voice keeps going awol.Keep forgetting the most basic of things like what day month is it.Feel ill shivery all the time ,no energy,horrid itchy red blobby legs and what looks like a dead persons feet.Feel depressed tearful for no reason.And if I'm honest scared.
Websites seem to deal with particular disease like Ra Lupus etc so WHO am I anymore,Whats going on,whats gonna happen to me next,and where do I fit Why am I not a RA patient or a Lupus patient.SO how do I fix it.What can I do.
