not Lupus :)
Well my Dr went over all my test results and says it's not lupus! Of course it wasn't all great news though he diagnosed it as MCTD and Scleroderma is making my elbows very sore so now I have to see a couple of new Dr's and get medications figured out good luck to you all and best wishes for good days to out number your bad days!
i am happy for you, that you now have a title for your pain.
most of the treatments for mctd and lupus are similar.
remember that we allow friends of lupus patients to me family here.........
as you are my friend...... you are welcome here, regardless of what they say you have.
please feel free to stay and become a part of our family.
MCTD is my diagnosis, too. I have some symptoms of Lupus, Sjogren's, RA and Psoriatic Arthritis.
As Steve said, you are still very welcome to be a family member here.
