Saw my local GP for blood test results - ANA positive - JUST!!! Others all over the place. Some can't get results because the ANA interferes with them??? He's sending me to a rheumatologist - 4 month wait!
I've had the worlds worst headache for 5 days now - incredible pain, nausea, blurred vision, the worst "blond moments" of my life (sorry to the Blondie's, we Aussies use the term a lot & mean no offense), SOooo clumsy & joints are killing me. When I went into the Dr's I had a "sun-kissed" appearance on my cheeks - weird because I haven't been outside. Later that night I went into the bathroom & saw a stranger looking back - with red welts on both cheeks not quite meeting on the bridge of my nose. Some fashion statement lol.
I feel so exhausted & now starting to get teary - GREAT that's all I need!
Sorry to be whinging but I live on my own & I'm not coping overly well at the moment.
I have to wait another 4 months to find out what is wrong with me. Is it Lupus or not? If not then what the hell is wrong with me?
PS ANA is 1:80 (normal is 1:40 according to lab)
ESR is 29 (normal is 1-15 according to lab)
ALP is 165 (normal is 30-120 according to lab)
all just a bit over the normal range
