Hi, I just found out I have Connective Tissue Disease. My GP had a test done but I haven't been to a Ruemetologist (?) yet.
Glad to have found someplace for answers and support. Besides this I also suffer from Migraine and Menieres. Really didn't need anything else but i guess you know that feeling to. Look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome, Silver!  You've definitely come to the right place if you're looking for a kind and supportive group of people.
Do you know what connective tissue disease your GP thinks you have?  What symptoms alerted you that something wasn't quite right?
Hopefully, your visit with the rheumatologist will be englightening and help you on your way to treatment and management of what ails you.  And again, welcome to the forum, and I hope you are doing okay!

He was thinking Lupus. I just told him I feel tired all the time and my hip and back hurt. He was doing other blood test and ran one for Lupus to. He may just be a GP but he's as good as any specialist I've been to and he doesn't hesitate to send you someplace else. :)

Thanks for the welcome.
