Have a few autoimmune disorders - now have consistent low grade fever
Hi, I usually try not to complain, but I am very frustrated. I have RA, Sjogren’s and Fibro along with spinal stenosis, osteoporosis, depression. I try really hard to stay active, stay away from pain medications and stay positive. Well, I am really down. I have had a low grade fever (99.8 to 101.2) for over two months together with, if possible, even more exhaustion than usual. I am really struggling. I have been to my rheumatologist who took bunches of blood tests. All came back within normal except I have low B12 and slightly elevated C3C. I recently had chest, abdomen and pelvic scans taken that came back clear. Now I am suppose to go to an infectious disease specialist. I am very frustrated and really tired of feeling sick and tired all the time. My boss (I still work part time), husband and family do not understand the exhaustion. I am getting “those” looks again like I did when I first started having fibro symptoms. I just wonder if any one else has had this happen and, if so, what was discovered? I just am super depressed. I feel as if I have taken ten steps backwards.
