I went to my rheumatologist for first time yesterday. He's doing bloodwork again to see what my level of inflammation is 2 months after diagnosis. Why? Because, although I have raised levels for pmr, I also have symptoms for myosthinia gravis and one other neurological auto immune disease (which name escapes me). MG closely resembles GCA. I was on information overload! There are too many auto immune diseases out there. So many similarities with slight variables. I'm also going to have a full body bone density scan which is supposed to be more thorough than an MRI. We will discuss prednisone after he gets the results of bloodwork. Has anyone else been through this?
All I know about my health right now is that I don't feel good, I'm in pain everywhere, and confused.
