Elevated Sed rate, Positive ANA, Elevated Anti-histones, C-reactive Protein, C3C. Sleep Apnea, 140 lb weight gain from prednizone, fatigue, extreme fatique in winter, hand and feet swelling, sleep apnea, asthma,pain in all joints, hump on neck, very large stomach girth, little skinny feet and hands. I have been diagnosed with:
RA, Raynauds, Mono, Lupus, possible secondary sjogrens, fibromyalgia, cushing like appearance and flu (repeatedly after 18 hospitalizations in 5 years and each time it was pleurisy, flu or pneumonia).
The last Rheumatologist I went to thought it might be lupus but said I needed further testing. I have no insurance and can not afford more pin sticking. Does all this sound familiar to anyone. I am physically and emotionally exhausted.
