I saw my rhuemy today. I still did not get a clear yes or no on If I have RA. I have developed nodes on right hand and left knee. My dr. Is now looking at sjogrens's symdrome because of dry eye and mouth and my lab work. I did more labs today. He said depending on my lab results he wants to start me on Plaquenil. I'm so frustrated because this is a waiting game. I always have an upbeat attitude when I see my rheumy so he feels it's a pleasure to work with me. However, he is unaware of the chronic fatique I deal with due to this autoimmune stuff and chronic anemia. My dr says I do know that something is going on. I quess he thought I was making all my symptoms up, until he got my lab results back. I'm trying to be patient. How lthe doong does the process take to get a dx. I don't want to wait until I can't use my hand anymore. Anyways I love being apart of this group, you guys seem to know more than the dr.
