Hi everyone. Im just feeling super sorry for myself and thinking a short vent might help me get over it. To be honest, I have just not been feeling well. About a month ago I had chest pain so bad that drove myself to the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. I was admitted for observation and released the next day after being told everything appeared to be fine. I followed up with a cardiologist who gave me every test my insurance would allow, and he has called to advise me that my heart is fine and healthy. Thank God! His suggestion is that it could be esophageal and possibly related to MCTD. Now I need to follow up with a GI. Really?!?! I continue to have chest pain; I have it right now as I write this. On top of that, I have also been experiencing more fatigue than usual, especially this week. I work a full time job and manage to push myself through it, but it seems as if its becoming more of a struggle to make it through the day dont even ask me how I manage to drive home!! And finally, this morning during a meeting, I had the strangest feeling come over me. My hands started shaking uncontrollably, I became dizzy and I literally forgot what I was saying. It scared me. On a positive note, I think the Plaquenil may finally be kicking in! I still have aches and pains, but nothing like what it was. Wooo! There I go! I got it all out and now I can exhale and go about my day. Thank you!
