Last time I saw him, I was feeling pretty good. He is a good Doctor, of course all my tests came back in a normal range. He said that He definitely believes I have lupus, possibly with some other autoimmune disease. Other than migraine headaches I have been good for few weeks now so I am crossing my fingers. I know that I will feel sick at any time, so I am enjoying the break from the pain and the fatigue.
I know exactly how you feel when you say u feel better one day and then bad the next.... That's also th e story of my life. I dont know how long agp you wee diagnosed with Lupus but I understand you said you were going to get a second opinion. I f it does come back that you do have it Lupus goes into remission, There are times when years go by and I dont have flares. Hang in there it gets better.
thanks, Lala! I really think the photos are whats saved me from being labeled a hypochondriac. It's always funny to see the dr's face when you whip out the pics. They are so surprised that I can show them exactly what I am referring to and ALWAYS say, "You took a picture? Why?" I'm like, duh! So doctors like you will learn to listen to "normal looking" sickies like me!
I know exactly how you feel, good idea about the photo, I am going to do do this also. I also am doing good right now. I am glad you are feeling pretty well right now.
