I'm a newbie.
Hey, my name is Kayla. I just turned 15. About 2 months ago I started having extreme hip pains. So bad they'd wake me up in the middle of the night. So I waited a month to see if maybe I pulled a muscle or something. It was still the same so I finally told my mom about it. We went to the doctors and they drew blood, we figured I'd be anemic cause my mom is anemic.
Then the next week we went there they said I either have Lupus or the rhuematiod arthritis. Our specialist appoinment isn't until June. I don't think it's arthritis. Arthritis mainly is in the lower half of the body, sometimes the pain is just everywhere. It's like I constantly feel like I just did some huge workout. Then I was telling my boyfriend about how I felt so spaced out. Like I wasn't here. I told mom about it and thats how she found this place. She said it was brain fog. It keeps getting worse.
I'm kind of afraid getting these symptoms so young that I'm going to end up dying earlier. But then it doesn't really bother me.
I'm not the same either. I used to be all happy and outgoing. I still try to be but sometimes I just want to lay down and forget about everybody.
