confused

Over the past 10 months I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos, Pernicious Anemia and Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disorder. My Endo will not put me on meds yet, because my thyroid function is not low enough. I am on B-12 shots for the Pernicious Anemia, and my rhematologist wants me to take Plaquenil for the UCTD. I have not started on the Plaquenil, because I would like to get pregnant within the next few months and I do not want to be on medication if I can stand it. I have gained 20 lbs in 45 days and I am still often very tired. All of the doctors say that the weight gain is not from the autoimmune disorders, but it came on so fast and at the same time all of this began. I often have strange aches and pains that I have learned to ignore. I have a positive ANA with a nucleolar pattern and sometimes my RF is out of range and sometimes it is in range. I don't really know where to go for good information to become more knowledgeable about what is happening to my body. Can anyone help?

I went ahead and copied it over to the Lupus forum since I'm almost certain that's where you wanted it :)

thank you for posting it in the Lupus forum. I'm not really sure how to do that.
