K have had a horrific past few weeks. Well I got really sick a few weeks ago lower abdomen pain had to go to urgent care and ER. Finally all the tests came back. I have a kidney stone (not moving or hurting --just chilling in my kidney:cool2:) I also have a cyst and a fibroid tissue in my left uterus (apparently two separate things not) and I have SI joint dysfunction. All these new things popped up within the last 30 days and I got the resulttoday :shocked: So HAPPY Day OFF :tongue2: I've been freaking all day wondering if this means the scleroderma diagnosis is gonna be a definite...been waiting on call back from Rheumy probably won't be til tomorrow. Oh well. Guess I better buy an umbrella as the torrential storms don't seem to be letting up. Well at least it can't take my sense of humor away....can it?!?! :cute:

hi brenda, you have really had a tough time......i also hope all of this does not result into a definitive diagnosis of scleroderma....please let us know tomorrow when you talk with your rheumy. I will be here all day (my weekly vacation), so please come around if you want to talk.

Hiya guys! K Rheumy called and as usual he's not worried..at least that makes one of us :tongue2: He said the kidney stone may or may not be caused by Sjogrens but he's not concerned it's scleroderma....he's saying all these thing are just coincidental and not related, and to keep taking plaquenil and wait for appt in February. Hopefully I won't be a stone statute by then LOL Seriously only thing that saved me today was my ability to laugh at my situation and my friends.

Thanks ALL :thanks:

hey brenda, sounds like your dr. is being very cautious and thorough in diagnosing your illness. I know you would feel better with a diagnosis, but i am glad that scleroderma is not the obvious one. hang in there, keep laughing and sharing with friends. i really hope that your kidney stone does not break loose, that would be anything but funny.

Keep laughing, perhaps your laughter will push that stone out!!! I know that is a physical impossibility, but we all have to keep up our humor!
I am sorry that so many things are happening at the same time. Please know that we are here for you!!

Peace and Blessings

I have had multiple kidney stones. The good thing about them is that the pain comes to an end.

Sorry to hear about everything popping up at once but YES...you have to have a sense of humor and Laugh everyday as often as possible to cope and deal with it all. I keep my sister and my around me as they are 2 of the funniest people I know and without them and laughter they bring I think I would have folded up in a corner a long time ago! Good luck to you but I am sure the laughter will shake it all up and make it disappear!
