I cannot catch a break. I went in for lab work last week and yesterday one of my pharmacies called and said then had a prescription ready for me. I thought it was for some backordered migraine medication but when I got there they pulled out a big bottle of pills. I was totally confused so I decided to see who prescribed them, it was my rheumatologist who had ordered all the lab tests. And I had no clue why I was prescribed medication because no one had called me and told me what was going on!
Long story short I called the office today and one of the nurses said that after reviewing my test results the doctor was strongly leaning toward a diagnosis of lupus and I was on medication for lupus because it can cause a cardiovascular event and this should keep it from happening.
Well, the good news is that at least I know why I'm exhausted all the time, why my joints hurt like hell, and a bunch of other things. Tomorrow I'm going to the doctor to have the labs explained to me, among other things. I'm a little nervous
Wish me luck! because apparently I have none
