Hi Everyone,
  I saw my rheumy today and took her a list of all the symptoms I have had since I last saw her. She read them all and agreed that they are not lupus symptoms and that I'm not having anxiey/panic attacks.
   She thinks I have something called, "Dysautonomia", I'm still trying to find some good info on that. What I have found so far is that it is when the Autonomic Nervous System malfunctions. The ANS controls all the body functions and I guess when you have Dysautonomia, it is out of wack.
   She is sending me to another neuro and to a clinic that specialies in Dysautonomia at UAB.  The appts haven't been set up yet. They are suppose to call me when they are.
   She also put me on 3 new meds and upped my dose of klonopin to help with the tremors.
   So when I find out more from the neuro and the clinic I will let you know what they say. Tks for all your help and support, I really appreciate it. Take care and have a good nite.
