I had my first appointment with a rheumy today today and he confirmed the diagnosis made by my Dermatologist and nephrologist of Lupus and Sjogrens. Now this may not seem very positive but he was most reassuring and so confident that it could be managed that I left feeling as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.
I am seeing him again when I have had the kidney biopsy and then we work know if my kidney problems are caused by lupus or simply 'wear and tear'.
I have been very very lucky with my doctors but I think that reading everybody else's post has enabled me to ask the right questions and supply the correct information.
Thanks for the support!
