Thank you all for your kind replies.
Since I last posted, I've had appointments with both the Rheumy (who I really like) and the Endo (which I don't like at all). I have a few answers, but not a clear diagnosis that covers all the bases. If you don't mind, would you take a look at my labs that I have so far and let me know what you think?
Repeat ANA - negative
Thyroglobulin Antibodies - 24.1: range, <20: flagged H
Thyroid Peroxidase AB - >1000: range 0-35: flagged H
Beta 2 Glycoprotein IGG - 9.7: range <20
Beta 2 Glycoprotein IGA - 57.5: range <20: flagged H
Beta 2 Glycoprotein IGM - <9.4: range, <20
Brain MRI - normal
Rheumatoid Factor - <7: range, <14
Sed Rate - 20: range, 0-20
CBC - normal
I'm still awaiting results from SSA-SSB antibody, Lupus anticoagulant profile, Complement C3 and C4. My medical record shows dx of "Raynauld's Syndrome, Sicca Syndrome (Sjogren's Disease) and Hashimoto's Thyroidis. And of course, Depression. Duh! I'm tired of hurting and being tired. Of course I'm depressed. have a return appointment with my Rheumy on May 6 to review the results. My endo has ordered more blood tests for next Tuesday: cortisol, free T4, TSH and Vitamin D levels.
My symptoms are the same -- extreme fatigue, hair falling out, always cold, fuzzy brain, weight loss. My knee pain has resolved, thanks to the Rheumy's injection of cortisone. I just feel so crappy.
I would appreciate any help in what these tests may indicate. Have they ruled out Lupus? I just want to feel better!!!!
Thanks for looking.
