It is a tough road to finding an accurate diagnosis and it is emotionally and physically exhausting. I understand the pain and frustration and the anxiety does not make it any better. Have you spoken to your doctor about anxiety medication? A few years ago my mama had four brain aneurysms rupture and we had to put her on life support for some time. She is fine now but during that time I could not even work and felt paralyzed to drive due to anxiety. The doctor really listened to me and had me on something that worked ina just a few weeks. It has made a world of a difference in my life. If they suspect autoimmune I am sorry to report my friend but you will be seeing a lot of doctors and anxiety could possibly scue some of the tests. Hopefully finding us will allow you to receive some support from those of us who have traveled this windy and bumpy road of being diagnosed!!! Welcome and please keep expressing yourself to us and talk to us about your anxiety at anytime......you never know, it may help
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
