I recently went to my allergist with an odd red rash on my face, upper chest, and arms. He decided to do bloodwork and one test is to check my ANA.
Curious, I started searching what this test was for....
These are my symptoms that I recently started putting together that has affected me the past three years:
Allergic to almost all antibiotics (6 out of the 7 classes)
Leg edema for close to two years (If I don't take my lasix twice a day my weight will bloom up 10 lbs in two days)
Four UTI in the last two years (Have had spells of not being able to pee first hour of the morning. Kind of like a lock down?)
Fatigue all the time
Achy joints (today my elbows, back, and knees)
faint red rash on my face and arms that appears in the mornings and disappears by bedtime (sometimes itches)
slightly enlarged lower left side of heart
Facial edema in the morning
I had GERD surgery a year ago
I have a low body temperture (97.2), but sometimes it runs up to 98.9.
I get brain fog and sometimes attacks of aphasia.
Does any of this sound familar?
