It's hard to be patient while waiting for the other shoe to drop. Try to distract yourself while waiting.
My symptoms started out with extreme fatigue and pain everywhere. Lupus affects everyone so differently. You may never get like your aunt.
I was diagnosed over a year ago. The rheumy says I'm doing good and that we caught it early. Maybe I won't get any worse than I am now. I'm holding onto that piece of hope for dear life. So far I have fatigue, joint pains, and issues with my asthma right now.
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! :))
