My doctor had called and told me I had tested positive for lupus.. she then referred me to a rheumy (whos appt is still 3 weeks away) I felt so bad that she started me on a prednisone burst and she sent me for more blood work... this time the ana was + again. she said the titer was neg and that if the titer is neg, you probably dont have lupus.. But she did a test for lyme disease and it came back positive. She said they were doing another test on the blood work for lyme and it takes a few days but wanted to start me right away on Doxycyclyn, 200 mg a day for 2 weeks. She also said my sedimentation rate was extremly high.. (all my joints are killing me) Has anyone has this experience with different diagnosis and treatments. I feel like im a guniea pig! :( and the worst part is, I feel worse!

theatre and I are there already. I'm having a very berry tea with crackers, cheese and cherry tomatoes and she's having a joint with some beer and we're both on really comfy recliners on thick pile carpet. we need some help with the decor if anyone is around??
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
