Hi, new on here n a little nervous about posting. Just looking to see if others feel the same and how you cope. Got blood results back from my GP who said I have anti nuclear antibodies but I am very confused. She said it links to systemic sclerosis and referred me to a rheumatologist (awaiting appointment). She's never had a patient with this before and doesn't know a lot about it. I am now worried sick not knowing if I definitely have this or not. I do however have a lot of symptoms but really struggling with extreme fatigue, have so much to do and get angry at myself as I have no energy and severe back and shoulder pain. It's got me to the point I'm in tears writing this as I feel I'm not coping and have a family to look after. I keep forgetting simple things and feel like I get a sort of brain fog which actually scares me. Some days aren't so bad but other's I struggle to even get out of bed. Just so scared and confused by it all.
