Ok. I have been to my pcp twice for a full blood workup and one rheumy since sept. of last yr. I have been tested for everything including lupus. The only things found were im iron deficient and anemic which was treated back in sept. My iron stores are now fine but i am still slightly anemic. This last time I had a uti I was treated for which is gone and a positive ana which was non-specific and blood in my urine. That has not gone away. My pcp pretty much disregarded everything since my uti was gone and said come back in a year. So, I am getting a new pcp and rheumy since he practically did the same thing and am seeing my neurologist jan 29th. So..more importantly I want to share the symptoms Ive had in the past as well as now...please tell me what you think:
-seizures starting at 15. Had two and was told I had idiopathic epilepsy. Was treated for 2 years with carbatrol and came off it in march of 06. Still have nystagmus from it but otherwise havent had any but get enough sleep at night.
-Had a 2 yr depression with very rebellious behavior after having the seizures but was told it was just depression and put on meds for a few months. I told them it made it better so came off of the 50mg of zoloft and that was that.
-systolic heart murmur
-Had symptoms on and off for years but didnt pay much attention. I got pregnant in april of 06 and had a miscarriage at 9 weeks.
-Got pregnant again 4 months after and my water broke at 27 weeks and I was hospitalized till 34 weeks when a scheduled c-section was done.
-morning stiffness and soreness(most mornings some mornings its not as bad)
-shortness of breath
-red flat rash with no bumps or pustules appears on face alone but sometimes also chest, arms and ears. Causes are alcohol, stress, sunlight and fluroescent light and getting overheated.(appears on face in butterfly pattern.)
-cold hands and feet with color change(white purple and red)
-hot hands or feet(red hot and burning)
-sharp pains in joints, bones and body(intermittent and range in severity)
-burning pain from lower back into knees sometimes all of my legs.
-lower back and leg ache.
-numbness and tingliness in hands and feet
-trouble concentrating and remembering(short term)
-loss of apetite
-mood swings & irritability
-dizziness upon standing
Please if any of this could be ms or anything neurological or if anyone has had anything similar please feel free to message me. thanks so much -Brit
