Aug 1, 2016 · Autoimmune diagnosing problem in Autoimmune Diseases

I have so many issues, it’s mind boggling! I don’t know where to start. I research, but I have so many symptoms of so many things. The doctors all look like deer in headlights when I start going over all my symptoms. I would love to just feel normal again.

Aug 1, 2016 · Fluid filled cyst in uterus, sealed cervix in Women's Health

My main concern is what the fluid filled cyst is. It looks uncommon to have one in the uterus. I am post menopausal, and I had a endometrial ablation done in 2013. The actual procedure hasn’t been scheduled yet, waiting for the call. Might be a blip now, I received blood work results today , and my glucose is 104.

I know i was negative for the biggies, but don’t think they tested for Lyme or brucellosis. I just received blood draw results from last week, and my fasting glucose was 104, which I believe is considered pre diabetic. But, that shouldn’t be causing all these symptoms, I wouldn’t think. What is TPO?

Most happened all at once, in the month of January. ANA is still positive, but 1:140, homogenous, which is low. I’m new to all this, so all I know is the rheumatologist ordered about eight vials of blood tested, and really the only thing bad was the positive ANA. Had thyroid tested a few times, by different Drs, and they say all good. I never trust they are doing the right testing though. Don’t know about the TPO test, will have to look.

Jul 31, 2016 · Autoimmune diagnosing problem in Autoimmune Diseases

I have been sitting here reading all this, and I am equally saddened and in disbelief. I share so many symptoms, I can’t believe it. I was fine until January of this year. Had multiple symptoms, all at once. Headache, eye blurriness and discomfort, neck and back pain, tinnitus in right ear, chest pain and heart palpitations, digestive issues, no appetite, weight loss, constipation, pins and needles in extremities, muscle pain and weakness in arms, legs, hands, and feet, dry skin, different spots on skin, and over the past few months, major hair loss. Add menopause symptoms to this, and I feel like I have been poisoned and dying sometimes. I have been to the ER 3 times regarding the chest pain, had tests and scans done, all ok. Saw cardiologist, had chest ct done, looked normal. Was diagnosed from hospital with Gerd and gallstones, had gallbladder removed in March. This solved zero of my issues, and I feel has actually made new symptoms, and made others worse. I’ve been to two different gps, a cardiologist, a urologist, a gynecologist, neurologist, gastroenterologist, an optometrist, and rheumatologist. Have had all the tests and procedures, and have no answers. My ANA has been positive four times, but other inflammatory markers are good. Also seeing hematologist for blood monitoring. I have an upcoming D&C scheduled for a fluid filled cyst or deposit in my uterus, and also a ct scan of abdomen/pelvis this Friday. So far, I have been given antidepressants, gabapentin, nexium, multiple antibiotics for recurrent Utis, Plaquenil, even though I’m not formally diagnosed with lupus, and metoprolol for HBP. I take supplements, when I can tolerate them, as I have daily nausea. I also get anxiety and panic attacks, and was just recently prescribed Lorazepam, to take as needed. I had to beg to get them, as doctors don’t want to prescribe them anymore. To date, the Lorazepam is the only medicine that gives me any relief from this madness. Can’t explain it, but it’s true. Not one doctor has any inkling of what’s happening, but I am desperate for answers! I am coming up on an almost 50 lb. weight loss! Very frightened and tired of being sick!

Jul 31, 2016 · Fluid filled cyst in uterus, sealed cervix in Women's Health

I have either a fluid filled cyst, or a deposit, in my uterus. Gyn tried to perform biopsy, but my cervix is sealed. Now I have to have a D&C. I’m very frightened of what this is. I’m almost 52, and believe I’m post menopausal. Anyone have experience or heard of this.
