Jun 28, 2012 · Undiagnosed - sjrogrens, lupus? in Autoimmune Diseases

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
