I have been dx with Secondary Raynauds, Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia
, depression and an undiagnosed auto-immune disorder. I also suffer from IBS and Heartburn daily. I have been put on Cymbalta, Procardia, Gabapentin and Ambien. I feel that I have Lupus but when I can finally get into see the Rheumatologist
I am usually feeling a little better. I also do not have health insurance
so it is difficult to be able to afford doc visits. I am also on disability and cannot work.
My question is I have a constant low grade fever ache all the time and so terribly tired that I sleep too much. I am currently on Prednisone because I broke out with some kind of rash on both forearms and they itched unbearably. I have had skin issues where prednisone is the only thing that works. There are times where I am so sick of being sick.
I just had some bloodwork done but I keep getting shuttled to either a neurologist or the only Rheumotologist we have in town ( who I cannot stand) or my primary, noone can tell me what is wrong with me!!! I finally received a letter from my doc on my bloodwork and my ANA test is abnormal- 1:640 Speckled and my sed rate is 26 with 2-15mm/hr considered normal. My numbers on tests have never jumped out, but I feel like I have all the symptoms of Lupus.
