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.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Degenerative Disk and Facet Disease, and Allergies

When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
