I took another trip to see my GP today and she helped me understand some of the blood work. My ANA SSA (Ro) was 251 and the dermatologist was not much help. As a matter of fact I left his office upset and angry, so much so that I thought I would start the fungal cleanse and help myself to feel better while waiting for the rheumy appt. Needless to say my smart a** got me into trouble again. I got very ill. I think my body just cannot take that right now. The GP did believe that I should not start the Plaquenil until the rhuemy has a chance to draw blood and it would be better to let him start my treatment. The GP did say that I could take the Motrin and my Bcomplex 100, biotin, and the probiotic. So things are seeming a little more positive (even though I feel like crap). My question to you all is: Has your GP told you that you cannot quit smoking until under the care of a Rheumatologist? She made sense when she explained why; I am just really anxious to drop this crutch.
