Hugs, Mars. Try not to stress further (not easy - I know ) and speak with your doctor.

Autoimmune disease indictators must be read in combination with other test results for antibodies. By using Google and one indicator - you're definitely not getting the full and accurate picture.

I'm not a doctor, just a medical pincushion with different types of autoimmune issues. :::Letting my medical freak flag fly:::

Google something else more interesting.... vegan food; music; sex; animals...anything NOT medical.

You did it to torment yourself! I understand because when I got my MS dx I went
directly to Google to read the worst but after a day or two started bookmarking
'positive' sites ...

When do you find out? This hanging suspense is ghastly ...

we are all thinking of you & sending positive thoughts your way ...

Scabies tends to hang out around the joints too? So maybe not autoimmune? I mean, scabies sucks, parasites and all that. But anyway. Hugses.

Well I talked to a Doc yesterday. The rheumatoid arthritis test came back negative, but she said she thinks I should see a rheumatologist for sure at some point because that's basically the extent of her knowledge in that field. Said however, if I'm having no symptoms anymore, there's not really a reason to be diagnosed with these types of diseases. It's a 'treat the symptoms' kind of disease and so the fact that my symptoms subsided and that I'm so young, she thinks I can wait.

ughhhhhhhh
fever just happened upon me like an hour ago, kind of a surprise attack of sudden "YOU ARE REALLY SICK RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE JUST LIE DOWN AND WHIMPER" illness

this does explain my complete lack of appetite recently though.

ugh bad timing in a new city :(

My allergies are all "I'm going to make you want to RIP YOUR NOSE OFF because it itches" and it's making my stomach feel sick for some reason. I never had bad allergic stuff until I moved here.

Urgh. Feeling like I constantly have a hangover is not fun. I haven't even had the benefit of being drunk and caffeine does not help one bit.

Frustrated starting the school year sick and crampy! I've had a sore throat due to allergies and acid reflux for 3 weeks; Dr now has me doing Flo-Nase (blech!) and Prilosec twice a day. I keep hoping that once I lose a significant amount of weight the acid reflux would go away. I thought it HAD gone away once I started eating vegan and quit caffeine. Alas, no, it did not. I started have esphogus spasms - those are not fun and had to go right back on the Prilosec. I want to be medicine free! :)

I have Crohn's and I'm so forking sick of my stomach constantly feeling uncomfortable and pooping like all the time. I don't even want to eat when it comes to mealtimes, which is unheard of because I really love food. But, I also don't want to take medications that are proven to be carcinogenic. Wah.

I have been fighting off a cold since Saturday. I think it's due to exhaustion. I've been sticking it out and going to work anyway, but today i was like fork it, my throat hurts, i'm sore, and exhausted despite 10+ hours of sleep. I'm staying home and (hopefully) healing.

Disappearing Ink - sorry to hear that you have Crohn's. my boyfriend has UC and has experienced a really bad flare-up since February. they finally admitted him to the hospital and found polyps, which they removed, and he's been better since. but I know how awful it is to deal with autoimmune/digestive disorders. hugs.

on another note, I am sick today. it came out of nowhere. had a sore throat yesterday, then I started sneezing and coughing a bit before bed. then I woke up at 4am - my teeth hurting, my head feeling swollen, after a series of strange /restless dreams. today my eyes feel swollen/puffy, and just...ughhh. sick. lots of coughing/phlegm/sneezing/misery. head is cloudy. don't want to eat, don't want to sleep, not really sure what I want to be doing, I should be sleeping I suppose. so miserable. ugh

Thanks, semiautomatic. That's very kind of you. I hope that you're feeling better soon. I finally caved and talked to my doctor, who prescribed me steroids. They suck, but will make me well for a time. However, they prescribed me a kind that only come in gelatine capsules. Wah. So I told the surgery's pharmacy I wouldn't take them and they said they'd get my GP to call me and give me something else comparable, but no one's done so yet.

Dammit, why did I have to get hit with a knock-me-down cold the DAY BEFORE I host a Halloween party?? I hope I can sleep it off before then. Or medicate myself through it, if I have to.

Woke up last night with a suspicious ache under my eye - yup, I think I have (very mild) sinusitis. Going to get the right kind of nasal spray and stock up on painkillers after the seminar we're having today. I want this cold to be over! It hasn't even been that long (only properly since Thursday) but I want to go out and run, dammit!

Oh, lutin, that is awful! Hope you get some rest and relief soon.

Day 8 of sickness here. Each day is a little bit better, but my sinuses are at that weird point where it's all kind of just in my ears and the back of my throat and I can breathe, but I still feel stuffy, and I can't smell anything, but I can taste things. Sinuses are dumb.

The cough and the snot are better, but the sinusitis pain is worse! I was ok on just paracetamol for the first few days, but yesterday I had to start taking ibuprofen too. The only fun thing about this cold is the amazing orange colour of the snot whenever a sinus opens up for a bit.
