Undiagnosed - sjrogrens, lupus?

Hi JJ, I’m also a 57 yr old female with all the same symptoms you write about. I recently visited a rheumatologist and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have had these symptoms for many years and seen many doctors including other rheumies. While everyone I saw said my illness was autoimmune in nature (I also have some form of urticaria), not one would put a name to my group of ailments. My bloodwork always comes back pretty normal but with hypothryroidism and low vitamin D levels. Even though it is a relief to finally have a name for it, it’s not much easier to deal with it. I’m already doing and taking everything I can for fibro. Try to see a specialist, either a rheumy or neurologist that specializes in fibromyalgia. It’s a very complex condition. Best, Tedib

TEDIB, THANK YOU FOR THAT REPLY. I DONT HAVE ANY INSURANCE AT PRESENT, BUT AS SOON AS I GET SOME, I WILL SEE A SPECIALIST. JJ

Are you feeling any better now? My friend has Sjogrens and Fibromyalgia. Her symptoms are very similar to yours. Praying for you.

What do you take for fibro? What test did they do for fibromyalgia?
