Lupus panel all within normal ranges. Rheumy said fibro and return in 3 months.
My back pain is getting me. I missed work yesterday and left early today. I visited my nurse practitioner again this morning. She has been on maternity leave, so we discussed my issues to get her up to date. I found out she has an auto immune disease and had seen the same rheumy i did and was not happy with his bedside manner. I agree with her. She is not convinced that his dx is correct. Another appt has been made with rheumy in neighboring state.
She took a urine sample due to back discomfort to check for possible UTI. I have a uti, but some of the results were higher than she liked. Said there is protein showing up. She is checking to make she it hasn't gone into my blood. I will know tomorrow.
In meantime I wait in pain and discomfort. She prescribed 30mg of Prednisone a day to try and help me feel better until we find out more. Should feel better in 24 hours, if not, I am to call and let her know. She feels something systemic is going and said she's giving up until we know for sure.
