All my blood tests show lowest end of range, eg: Sodium 132, feel so sick sometimes I can't function. Blood pressure can fall to 70/35 even with 3 bags of fluids administered. Intermittent swelling of throat and axilla glands, (tonsils out yrs ago), twelve months of very heavy periods that had me taking Cyklokapron, feverish when pancreas plays up, tanning to skin when no sun exposure and fatigue that cripples me. Seem to have "remission" stages where I feel pretty good for a few months, then go down like a sack of potatoes! Tested for ANA, came back negative, Addison's, but 2 x morning cortisols were normal, thyroid level is 1.4, and I've had a Gyno visit for D&C and Pap smear, breast screen, colonoscopy (removed polyploid lesion) and multiple scans that show nothing conclusive. I figure you can't find what you don't know your looking for???? I feel ?lupus but GP won't go further then ANA test. Anyone any ideas???
