Boy is it common...for at least 11 years I have been told that it was all in my head. Not in so many words....but you know what they mean...
I started to believe that it was and I was just imagining everything...As my rheumy would say...where there is smoke there is often fire...your ana is not normal and was not normal when you were experiencing all that pain. So something is wrong. I can't diagnose you but it sure seems like many of the symptoms.
It is hard to get a diagnosis, however. Sometimes it takes many years. The blood tests results can fluctuate with a lupie and that can be confusing.
