Hello,I was just diagnosed a few days ago so I'm really still in the shock, dramatic time after hearing this. I have a boy who is 5 & he is all I think of since the diagnosis, it breaks my heart & can't help crying everytime I picture his life without me. I just needed some advice please regarding the stage that you are diagnosed at, are there any symptoms to whether it is at the begining or in a later stage? I read tons of articles the past few days but can't really tell which stage I am at. The symptoms I had started with severe skin rash 4 months ago that lasted about 2 weeks & now I have dry mouth & a little swelling in my abdomen area.
Your answers will help me a lot till my first appointment with the consultant next week.
