You have a great attitude! You will go far with this sort if "bring it on, I can take it" outlook. You are right, waiting can be hard so get on with living and eventually you will have your answers. Just be assertive with your doctors noting all new symptoms and such. Good luck and keep us posted.
Love and prayers,
I agree that some people with one autoimmune disease may be susceptible to having another. I have been diagnosed hypothyroidism, multiple sclerosis and perhaps soon to be diagnosed with psoriasis.
One neurologist thought I might have Lupus based on a rash on my face, while the other thought MS. I found an interesting website that has a comparison chart for MS, Fibro, and Lupus:
~ Symptom Cross-Reference Chart ~
I would be interested in any other autoimmune comparison charts, if anyone knows of one.
