Well add me to the list of swine fluers!! I got it 2 weeks ago and then it very excitingly developed into pneumonia!! YAY!! NOT! I have been sooooooo sick. I spent two weeks in bed. I just got off bed rest today and finished my antibiotics yesterday.
Anyways, I did see the DO is Mansfield, TX the day before I got sick. He gave me some advice on some suppliments to take, ran some more blood work and made some suggestions. I was supposed to go back this week to see him. However, after being sick for 2 weeks, I just am not up to going out of town to see a Dr (i live in OK, not Tx) just 3 weeks before our move to TN.
My lab work came back normal. Of course. He jsut double checked my thyroid and some vitamin levels, B and D. He siad that my hips seemed out of alignment and suggested they get manipulated to re-align them. He also suggested some physical therapy.
I'm not so sure... I have seen chiropractors, recently even and this has never been something that has come up. So I'm not discounting it, but I am not totally with that line of thinking either.
He did do a tender point test and again, I had maybe 2 tender points out of the 11 required for FMS diagnosis. He didnt really discount a FMS diagnosis, but didnt really feel that was something to look int either.
So I dont know...After getting really sick these last few weeks, I know something is up with my immune system and really want to try and find a Dr who will look more seriously in a Lupus possibility. I just have a very hard time getting over illnesses. My immune system is very week despite how hard I work at keeping it as strong as possible. Hopefully my move to Memphis will generate a great Dr who will really help me find a diagnosis and treatment!!

Oh, I'm so sorry you've been so sick. I feel lucky that my swine flu finished after ten days or so (though the cough lasted for two weeks). Sounds like you've been thru the wringer. Keep trying to get your diagnosis, good luck!
