Thank you so much for the websites, Jan!
My Opthamologist said I have Nodular Scleritis. Oh man! I have been tested for:
Rheumatoid Arthritis (last year when it all started, and it was negative, but my Rhemy checked again yesterday), Lupus, pretty much all the others in the first list (I had an Xray and blood test for Ankylosing Spondlytis yesterday), and a few others on the second list. I have not been checked for Gout, TB, Lyme Disease--could my Internist check for these, do you think?
I have also had ESR, RPR, ANA, ANCA, etc. blood tests run as well. Maybe I will be "lucky" and be one of those that fall into the 50% or whatever it is, of people who have Scleritis for no reason???
Anyhow, I am going to call my Internist today and tell her what the Rheumy put me on before I take it. Whether I have Crohn's or not, I obviously should avoid NSAIDS regardless.
Thanks again for all the information! I am going to check out those websites for sure!
