Okay, so I had a rheumy appt on 3/26. I was a bit taken back at his bedside manner. I do understand he is supposed to be a leader in his field and people come from all over to see him.
But I asked him to explain what my positive ANA of 640 meant. His response "that is the least of your worries."
So, he proceeds to tell me I have bad arthritis and need new knees and need to lose weight. Okay (LOL).
Once I asked again about the positive ANA test, he said "one is false positive."
Okay. Still have no answers.
He said he didn't think I had lupus. But what was he basing that on? I could not tell you. Even with the sun sensitivity (to which he said for me to wear a sun hat and do not go outside without sun screen)
the rashes, he said I needed to see a Dermatologist when it was active and possibly have it biopsied. Okay!!
So, he ran a tons of test, (5 viles of blood) and I go back on May 17th.
I still know nothing. :(
Frustrated, pissed off, mad, sad, glad, and everything in between!!!
Thanks for letting me vent.
