It's been almost a year since my daughter woke up with severe abdominal pain in her right side. Since then, she has been to 12 different doctors at 4 different hospitals. They have done every test imaginable. Sometimes my daughter hurts so bad she has trouble breathing. She has also experienced weight loss, extreme fatigue, swelling of the joints, and an almost constant cold. She went to an immunologist after her general doctor found that she had an extremely high ANA count. He said that he would treat it as lupus but he wasn't diagnosing it as that. She was on prednisone for three months but that didn't help. She is now only taking Plaquenil for her joints but it's not helping. She also takes naproxen sodium every 8 hours as needed. Does anybody have any suggestions of what we can do or what it could be? I hate seeing her in so much pain!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
