Hi guys, I have posted on the Fibro forum before, but never in here... but thinking that I should. I've been going through a lot in the past 2 months. I have been in and out of the doctors office and hospital. So, 100 trips to these facilities and about
1000 pints of blood later, we have a diagnosis. My rheumy told me that I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years, and it has gone completely undiagnosed. He also said that I am lacking in vitamin D and need to take 2,000 mlg of D a day. Also I tested positive for ANA. It is high and abnormal (1:80). He said that I don't have Lupus just yet.... wth does that mean??
I asked him what he meant by that and this is what he said, "At this time you do not meet all of the criteria for Lupus; However, that does not mean that later down the road that you won't develop lupus. You very well could get Lupus down the road, it could be two weeks from now, two months from now or two years from now, we just don't know." He also said that with my blurred vision, migraines, dizziness and numbness that it sounds like I could have MS too.... UGH! So he wants me to get an MRI done. I am changing my insurances and it will go into effect of May 1st. So once that happens I will get an MRI done. Anyways, so I am still in chronic horrible pain, having horrible dizziness and nausea, and a host of other things (oh yeah, I have even started to loose a bunch of hair, that's fun.) So the doctor that I have gave me lyrica and trazidone, both to be taken at night before bed... still waking up in pain and of course during the day it does nothing. I am in so much pain. I am trying to do right and eat better and trying to incorporate some working out, but it kills me the next day. Well, if anyone has any words of advice... what do you guys think about
the whole ANA bit and the might getting Lupus thing?
