I did have a positive ANA test. I do not have the rash or sores in my mouth.
I am not on any medication right now. They put me on the prednizone for a while but took me off because my symptoms were not to where I felt the side effects (of the prednizone) out weighed the pain. They are constant but not debilitating. I have the pain in my shoulders and the pain when taking a deep breath. I have been to a pulminary doc. and he said there is no indication that I have any loss of lung expantion. It's not that I have trouble breathing it's just that it hurts when I breathe deep.
It's just frustrating not to have anyone that understands it. My doctor just listens and nods his head but cannot really give me any definate answers. Some days I wake up and feel worse than others but it seems to get a little better the more I move around but is still always there.
Thank you for your reply. I will look at the sites you recommended.
Is there anyone out there that had the phlursey that did not go away?
