Hello all! My name is Ashley.
I am just starting on my journey, I had some bloodwork done for my yearly physical and was found to have really low WBC counts, so my PCP sent me to a rheumatologist. The first (the mean one) rheumy ran tons of tests and diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. I didn't like her so I found my new rhuemy who I love and she confirmed my fibro Dx and also said it looks like I may have Lupus also. She's ran test, including an MRI and Xrays and I go back Nov 8 to see the results from that.
She started me on some meds for both the fibro and possible SLE. (There all in my siggy as well as some of my other Dx.)
I am a SAHM to two children, a boy who's 7y/o and a girl who is 22m. My husband works for us in the oil industry. We all live in Houston, TX next door to his parents and they help me a lot when I am down or can't seem to get moving.
Well that's pretty much it, i'll be happy to answer any questions and I look forward to getting to know you all a little better and having a place where everyone can understand what im going through.
Dx: Fibromyalgia, "tentative" SLE, Hypothyroidism, PTSD and GAD.
Rx: Plaquenil, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Ultram, Relafen, Synthroid, Abilify, Klonopin, Vit D3, and Lunesta.
