Today I got the blood test back. the doctor mentioned hypothyroidism, but my dad said that it is "only the symptoms". How do symptoms come from a blood test? I'm so lost. I don't know what to think anymore. On the perscription for the meds, I saw the letters TPO. I don't know if it's supposed to mean if I have it or if it's only the 'symptoms'. If I don't have Lupus (as I only have an Unofficial diagnosis from a long time ago), and I don't have hypothyroidism, then what the heck is wrong
I want to get a new test done for Lupus. I'm tired of beating around the bush, and my mom is saying that it might be fibromyalgia instead of lupus. I just want a diagnosis! At least if it's Lupus, I know how to deal with it! Why can't the doctor put something other than 'connective-tissue problems' on the stupid referal?! Please excuse my ranting, but I feel like I'm going nuts! 15 years of 'it might be Lupus' already has my hopes up of a diagnosis, but no! No more blood tests since I don't have
Alright. I don't think it has anything to do with Lupus, but it gives me flares so I'm not sure.

Trying to keep the fact that I don't feel well from the others here. I'm not home, so I can't go see a doctor, and I don't want to bother everyone else here again.
Here it goes:
For the past several months, I've
I just got over asore throat about a week ago, and ended up with another one (The last two this week have only lasted a day or so though. Thank goodness).Then, the pain in my arm subsides for a bit and has come back again.
At the moment, I'm mad at All Childrens for destroying my records from 10 years ago (since I really need them now of all times) . Need them for my doctor. Now I have to go through all the crap again. This time I hope that they test me during a flare so
