Hi again...here are my symptoms and could you let me know what a exam is like with a Rheumotologist? I can't remember if what was done, only the blood tests...
I have seen a Rhumatoligist, Neurologist (2), Internist, and was in VGH hospital for a few weeks a year ago, the Hemotologist wanted me to have a bone marrow, LP, and other Lung function tests etc.
My symp started with Vertigo and off balance, alot of joint pain in my hands, wrist, ankles, knees, shoulders. then I got worse with Double vision/blurry vision etc. Now my leg muscels are sore and weak and my calves get crampy almost everyday in the late afternoon and evening, My hand get so cold I wear glove in the house, everyday.
My symptoms are more now then they were a year ago when I saw the specialists who said they don't know what is wrong.. I did have two MRI...showed lesions in corpus callusom and subcortical...but they said not the MS type?? I had Granulomas in my Bone Marrow and monoclonal bands in my blood...?? The lung function test came back with Reactive Airway Disease...which means they are not sure why I have shortness of breath...I don't know .. my GP says he is stump and now I'm going to try a psyciatric and see if its in my head...as well as the pain..?? thanks for any info..
