View Full Version : Doc just add APS to my diagnoses

04-29-2011, 12:50 PM
Well I had my doctor repeat the lupus blood I'm work and do an APS test. Everything came up positive . In the back of my mind I was hoping that the test would be negative but no not the case. So know I've got MS,lupus,APS. He did say that he felt my lupus is mild . And my MRI of my shoulder said I've got tendonitis and chronic capsultis (frozen shoulder). I'll be going to PT as soon as they can set it up . I'm seeing an MS specialist in June about treatment.
Still can bring myself to understand why I have all these diseases together. Doc seem to be getting upset with me that I keep questioning his judgment .
Now my aunt's want to get blood work done for possible lupus and my daughter is scared about this. My daughter has signs of vasculitis on her legs . I wish that we could afford to get her tested ,she doesn't have insurance right now.

I do have good news . It seem like my lungs are getting better and the pleurisy ( I think) is going away. Thats good huh?? =)

Hi Daylight,

I know it is really hard to comprehend but what you have happening isn't uncommon. So many of the AI diseases are close together in how they affect the body that many of us have overlapping diseases. While Lupus and MS are more rare, many on here have Lupus and APS along with many other things. The treatment for many of the diseases is much the same so the adding a name is simply to see what your body is doing.

Great news about the lungs!! Keep us posted!
