Hello all of you!
I hope you all are well and staying healthy through this very weird time in the world.
I wanted to ask all of you as my anxiety has been wild if you think it'd be wise for me to get a second opinion from a rheumatologist?
I still have Raynauds like symptoms, hair loss, white fingernails with pinkish bands at the top, stiff lower back pain, spider veins, some chest pains, and am just concerned if it is in fact Lyme and Co. causing these symptoms or if it's Lupus. As some of you know I had an Avise CTD test for autoimmune issues done 11 months ago and it came back indeterminate for Lupus. On it I had a positive ANA, 1:640 titer, and positive anticardiolipins and of course positive thyroid symptoms but everything else was lower and not positive for the ranges of that lab.
I don't want to be drugged up crazily by a diagnosis but the not knowing is truly driving me crazy.
Thanks for all and stay well!
