Can anyone with experience offer their opinion... :cool: Over the last several years, I have not felt well or myself for periods of time, then it would diminish. I went to a rheumatologist in 2003 and had an low positive test for elevated DNA DS, only a 32. In the last 6 months I have had blurred vision and a haze around my vision... I have also been easily fatigues and find that I cannot multi-task or handle stress as I used to... I have an appointment with the same rheumatologist but have to wait 4 LONG MONTHS.... I did have my internist rerun the antibody tests and the DNA DS is now 102 and in the positive range... I also have B12 deficiency, thyroid deficiency and dry eyes determined by the dry eye test. I am trying to determine which of the autoimmune disorders I may have and what I should ask to be tested. I feel it is the utmost importance to take care of myself and need to know what the diagnosis is... :confused: Thank you!
