Positive Rho52 antibodies apparently only attack babies?
I am a newbie. I have posted on a couple of other sites tonight and have nto received any replies as yet, but any would be most appreciated.
It's been a long journey, but will try and keep it short and hopefully you will understand it. 3 Years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Autoimmune Disease) TSH was 250 (limits between .4-4) My Thyroid antibodies were over the 3,500's can't remember exactly but they should be way under 60. Anyway put on medication and eventually after about a Year started to have a life again.
Went to college, studied Aged Care - became employed as Personal Carer and then this year went on to Study - Endorsed Enrolled Nurse (EEN) full time. First semester passed like no tomorrow, passed everything and even received a credit in a subject. BUT this Semester is a different story I have been sick for a couple of months now. Have been diagnosed with Polymyalgaia, Polyarthralgia, Cognitive Deficit??? and extreme lethargy. I have also tested positive to Rho52 which apparently affects new born babies and gives them lupus. This has the doctors stumped. Can't get in to see a Immunologist until December (if I am alive by then), six weeks to be able to see a different Endocrinoogist as I had a call by my last specialist who seems to be the only one concerned saying that my Thyroid antibodies were up in their thousands again.
I just feel like giving up. The medical profession wants nothing but your money, and I don't believe the things that we are learning at nursing is what is being practiced today. The only good thing is the penalty rates for weekends and nights at present.
Please if anybody can reply I would most appreciate it. I need some sort of help and soon.
Soz, but thanks for listening
Help always appreciated.
