Hello everyone, recently diagnosed with MP. Went to ER with what I thought was just another kidney stone turns out it wasn't but it was MP. had several enlarged lymph nodes in the lining and severe pain. My family dr. has ran several test checking for autoimmune. The ANA came back positive, he ordered a colonoscopy to rule out any colon issues, all was clear there. So now back to drawing board waiting to see what other tests he wants to do. Can't seem to find out what has caused this. My paternal grandmother had multiple autoimmune diseases, I also have a cyst on my right kidney and have suffered from kidney stones for last 12 years. I have had mono twice in my life time. once at 13 and another time at age 22. Second time I was in bed for a solid week going and getting a shot everyday for the swelling in my throat and ears. I am looking for any information to help me cope with this condition. I have low grade fever, body aches (like flu), and the pain in my side. Steroids have helped with the swelling which has reduced pain. Still have occasional flare up of pain. I just want to feel normal.
