somebody has to know i hope so because its driving me mad, i have so much pain daily.
Pain in joints, muscle weakness(lately) extreme fatigue,shooting pains in head. The only thing in blood work at first last summer they thought I had lupus, and said my rheumatoid factor was high, but then went down,the only thing consistant in bloodwork is wbc going higher and higher and red lower and lower, I did see in mt ct scan report lymph nodes swollen in aota, and just found out yesterday the lymes test came back with one band and to be positive its two bands, if positive at all doesn't that mean it was in my bloodstream at some point?Another doc said my lymphocytes were high is that the same as red blood cells? could this be why I'm so ill?I tried to post this earlier it didn't work I hope it does now because I don't know how much longer I can take this...and no the depression didn't come before the pain it came after, as I can't barely do anything at all and can't do anything at all without pain.
