At my last neuro appointment, they mentioned a rheumy. Actually, I didn't see the doctor, I saw his RN so the doctor didn't say it, his staff member did. My last ANA test was from the neuro and it came back negative, but after this last one.....I'm really not sure that their attitude of "it might be some connective tissue disorder" is really the best attitude and I do want a second opinion.
Once I get the money I'm planning to go to a rheumy.
I do feel truly horrible during these events, but I just want answers. I'm just afraid of damage the longer it goes undiagnosed. Old story for everybody, eh? Thanks!
