Also, I will say that the thousands of dollars spent to basically be told, “come back if you get worse” and receive a prescription for alieve was crappy. No answers, no diagnosis, no real treatment plan. Taking care of myself better is my personal goal and so far it has been helping! Hope you get feeling better as well. Autoimmune issues suck.

Some of your symptoms sound like they could by deficiencies. Look up Vitamin B12 deficiency, Vitamin D deficiency, and magnesium deficiency. A lot of doctors don’t start with those or treat those, which is not good because that’s where a lot of health issues come from.
The B12 can be tested for, iron and folate levels need to be tested with this.
D can be tested for. If taking Vit. D, it needs to be D3, along with K2.
The magnesium one can not be tested for accurately.

sorry to throw something else in the mix, but have you investigated lyme disease? I have all those symptoms and have lyme and babesia (co-infection of lyme).

I have been getting tests over the past year as well. I’m ANA positive with a speckled pattern. Lupus and arthritis run in my family so I figured it would be one of them, but my tests came back negative and normal for both. I have psoriasis and joint issues but it’s incredible difficult to get a definitive answer. Auto immune issues are difficult to diagnosis so I get to go get more tests done tomorrow.
