I went to my Rheumy twice and when I went in for the results for blood test, his exact words were " you tested positive for lupus". I am looking at my test results right now and it says ANA Hep 2 titer" POS 1:1280.
Now at the third visit, he is telling me I DO NOT have lupus but fibromyalgia and I am now taking Lyrica at night.
I am still getting these raised bumps which turn into a tiny blister and leaves a scar for awhile, on my stomach, back, shoulders and arms. He said nothing about the bumps, but he saw them when he examined me upon my first visit.
In the book I started reading about lupus, the woman who wrote it said she was diagnosed, undiagnosed, diagnosed, undiagnosed a few times. The RN/Paralegal I have worked with for a long time sees me every day and she said she still thinks I have lupus. Anyone here have difficulty getting the right diagnosis?
