The rheumatologist finally called today. My labwork was still abnormal (elevated sed rate and CRP) although my last ana was negative. He mentioned lupus at my visit last month but is calling it a mixed connective tissue disease. He is putting me on plaquenil. I am so glad it finally has a name and I am getting treatment. I had almost resigned myself to the fact that this would be another dead end. I am sitting here so relieved but wondering is it right to be so excited? How have others felt when you finally got diagnosed?
