Hi,
I've been able to log in to my Dr.'s office to see results of my blood work for the past 9 months or so. It lists Medical History and shows conditions that I knew I had been diagnosed/treated for example Plantar Fascitis, anemia, seizure disorder, Hypothyroid, it also lists "Systemic Lupus Erythomotosis". I knew I had been tested for this many years ago, but was never told it was positive????
 
Anyhow, I haven't been feeling well, and have been back to the dr. recently for a couple of things. (sorry this is getting long) The blood work came back on Monday and shows quite a few issues. I STILL haven't gotten a call from my Dr.'s office, I would think they would call and tell me how to proceed. I hate to call, I feel like a hypochondriac!

The things that I can see that are off in the bloodwork are: TSHw/ reflux, Iron Binding Profile (3 tests, two are low, two are high), Sedimentation Rate - H, Low RBC, MCH - H, Eosinophils - H, ABS Monocyte Inst. H, ABS EOS inst. also High.

So, my question is, should I call them, or maybe these results aren't as bad as they look to me???
Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this.

Ask to be referred to a Rheumy ASAP. They can get you further tested and get you on the right medicines to control it.
