Hello, im a 46 year old female that for the last several months have found myself having extreme fatigue and just an over all feeling of malice,sore joints,muscle pain,and i battle sleepiness constantly. I hesitently went to my GP and explained this to her. She did an ANA test along with CBC and a reumatoid arthritus test. My platelet count was 115,000 and my ANA was speckled rim pattern my rhumatoid came back negative. GP said i need a rheumatologist. She said i have a lengthy wait and not to be really concerend about it.
I am way past concerned here. I feel in my body that something is just not rite. Can anyone help with understanding my ANA and i wonder if my doctor would be concerned if these were her lab results. I felt as if i was a bother to my doctor with my complaints. She was in a hurry and rushed me out without the anwers i so needed to at least help me cope with my body going nutso!
Any input would be greatly appriciated. Thanks a bunch
