Lab Results & More Waiting
Most of my lab results are in now, and pointing strongly toward something autoimmune. I have been experiencing low-grade fever, joint pain and stiffness, poor sleep and insomnia, swelling, fatigue and weakness for 6-8 weeks now.
Commonly known autoimmune conditions are Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. There are many others.
I am being referred to a Rheumatologist, who will likely need to do more tests before we can get a diagnosis. At this point I don't know how long of a wait I will have before I can see the specialist.
It's kind of a solemn thought to know that something's wrong, but with how I've been feeling, that isn't a surprise. It's also a relief to know my labs showed something abnormal.
As always, I appreciate all of your friendship and encouragement. After a very busy day, it's time for Elephant PJs! :-)
I hope everyone's doing well.
