Oh Brenda, bless your heart! That sounds absolutely terrible. I really do understand the frustration and the wanting to be in denial. Plus being around others who like to deny that you are ill and saying it's all in your head doesn't make it any easier. I'm so glad you finally got the courage to take a look at what is going on with you and realizing you need help. You really need these tests done. All of them. I can't beleive they didn't do an ANA after this long. I wouldn't be surprised if you have a high sed rate. Hey your are on the right track though. One step at a time. I havn't been to the doctor in 3 months and that's a long time for me. Let us know how the test go and tell them you want all the test done not just half of them. and than come here and share with us. You need some possitive reinforcment.Hang in there
