Yes, hang in there Emily. The diagnosis will come, but it can take a while. You're getting a lot of symptoms, so that should help move things along.
Sometimes, the flare ups just need to do their thing and then out of the blue, you start to feel well again. Especially if you're on the right medications. Make sure your rheumy tries you on other meds if the ones you're on now just aren't working.
We're here for you and understand what you're going through 100%..
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in, to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
