Appointment #2 was today with my rheumatologist. My 2nd ANA panel came back with abnormalities again. I tested positive for lupus. I guess I’m still in shock. She said that I tested low & for now we’re going to keep an eye on it & have check ups every 3 months. I can’t concentrate on anything else now. I’ve been googling Lupus all evening. It seems like I’ve had several “symptoms” all along, but was just chalking them up to being normal. Is that possible? Or am I just seeing too much into it? I keep thinking that I’m being paranoid now & an hypochondriac. Feeling so lost & that I can’t talk to anyone. I don’t like to bombard other’s with my problems & be the one known for always talking about her health problems. I don’t know where to go from here.
The day of my appointment has finally come!!! They did some more blood work, paying more attention to Lupus at this time. Other than that, they gave me tips on keeping my core warm & a check up date in 1 year. Thank you for the encouragement!!!
