I tested positive a month ago for lupus and RA, the doctor is running more test and will get results tomorrow. But I also have hashimoto thryoid disease, my thyroid is slow and so is my body. lol Does anyone else have other autoimmune diseases as well as lupus? I didnt know what lupus was when he told me now Im like everyone else, scared, mad, and depressed. Between menopause and all this my body makes me feel like dying somedays. But like all of you I get up and go anyway. I dread tomorrow, I have so many symptoms I know I have it, Ive worried about it for a month and if he tells me I dont Im still going to be mad knowing Ive worried and still feel like crap.

Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
